ONCE UPON A TIME IN KYOTO
In this animation, MIC reports from Ningxia province in
northwest China. This piece takes a close look at a very specific
environmental initiative implemented in developing countries by the
United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) — the
Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects. We explore the origins of
the CDM and trace down to a particular CDM project in China to look at
its social and environmental impact. The question arises – does green
living, require green awareness?
“Going Under”, a collective animation project by The Melting Iceberg Collective. After receiving the highest number of votes on the Planet Forward website, our cartoon was screened on PBS and we were invited to participate in the televised panel discussion with CNN’s Frank Sesno and Pres. Obama’s Environmental Adviser, Carol Browner.
