The Earthsharing Challenge Camp Take 2
An action packed weekend learning the current issues from people who live with them daily. Record these stories on camera and let’s make it into our very own documentary!
Participants Attending the Camp:
• Approximately 20 students will be chosen.
• Students from years 8 to year 11 can apply.
• All students will undergo a free film training day in the Melbourne CBD before attending the camp.
What Will Happen on the Camp?
The weekend will involve a tour of Anglesea’s environmentally significant sites and people. The issues will include forestry, water and waste.
While gathering local footage and information, the Challenge participants will be based at the Angahook Holiday camp . While enjoying the calm, country air, students at Angahook will be involved in workshops, forums and fun stuff with guest speakers and local community thinkers.
The youth initiative is free for student participants and made possible through the support of the Anglesea community and Prosper Australia.
What About After the Camp?
The footage filmed will be compiled into a youth documentary for the young participants to take back to their schools and for teachers to use as an educational resource.
Opportunities for the film to be placed in competitions and shown across Victoria will also be explored. Watch the 2006 film here>
