Planetary Health Film Lab 2020 – York University

The Planetary Health Film Lab, 2020

Below are the seven Planetary Health Film Lab documentaries made over the course of a one-week intensive workshop in 2019 at the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research at York University in Toronto, Canada. The seven young participants came to the Lab from six different countries to tell their stories of the impacts climate change is having on the health of their people and the planet. Participants attended lectures each morning for the first three days and used the remaining time to produce these spectacular and deeply personal films. They have been posted on The Youth Climate Report map project contributing to the database of visible evidence that international policymakers use in their policy creation research.
