ABOUT

We are a multinational group of United World College (UWC) graduates from Romania, Bangladesh and Colombia and the U.S. Thanks to the mission of UWC we have become a group of artists and political activists who are committed to use film and media in order to promote international understanding, environmental awareness, civic engagement and human rights advocacy.

During our education at UWC and Middlebury College we were able to pursue our passion for social media and collaborate on audiovisual projects that envisioned media as an educational and empowering force. Thus, in our senior year of college, we formed ‘The Melting Iceberg Collective’, an advocacy group that uses video and social networking on the Internet to raise awareness on environmental, social and political issues worldwide, in an effort to inspire people to take action in their own communities.

The Melting Iceberg Collective: George Mynatt (USA), Farhan Ahmed (Bangladesh), Luisa Covaria (Colombia), Louis Lobel (USA), Ioana Literat (Romania)

    Farhan, Luisa, Ioana, George and Louis, I am impressed by your amazing initiative. More grease to your elbows, and all the best with the China project. Maybe we will be able to team up to do something on Ghana and other parts of the African continent. There is a lot to cover there as well. Louis, great to hear you have been to Ghana. maybe we can take Farhan and the rest of the crew back to Ghana sometime soon. I am proud of you all and wish you all the best. Farhan, I hope to talk to you soon.

    Regards,

    • Dear Daniel
      Fantastic to hear from you and it is delightful to see how fast ‘the good word’ can spread. Ghana is on the list now. Africa still remains the land I have yet to touch (and Antarctica i guess).
      We are pulling all our combined effort to make the China project happen. We still have a long way to go, but we are a motivated bunch flying high on the visions of a dream. It will happen. But we need all the help we can get. Spread the good word for us Daniel. 🙂
      My regards to your family. I think fondly on the many feasting festivities at your house in Flekke.
