Emerson College has partnered with other Boston area institutions and the Boston Green Ribbon Commission to create the Action Pact Boston Ready, Resilient, Reinvented video competition. Videos should be about climate change, what it means to the student, and the urgency of the situation.
Videos can be submitted online or by using the hashtag #ReadyResilient on social media from March 1, 2022 through March 16, 2022. Winners will be announced late March.
The top three winners will be offered a cash prize. First place will receive $500, second place $250, and third place $100.
Video requirements are as follows:
- Create a 1-3 minute video sharing what climate change means to you
- Communicate the urgency of taking action within the next few years
- Identify an opportunity for climate mitigation and resilience at an individual, community, city, or state level
- Close with a clear action ask of the audience
Submissions may use any narrative form to create videos and use any type of platform to create videos, including Instagram and TikTok.
Winners will be judged by popular choice (i.e. how many likes on videos). Please see the rubric for criteria.
