Imagine this: You’re watching a blockbuster film, and you—along with millions of other parents and children—admire the best-of-class electric motorcycle a superhero is given to fight crime.
Suddenly you’re not only aware that there are such things as electric motorcycles, but also that they are fast, powerful, and super cool. We were pleased to see this scene in Incredibles 2, and it’s our mission to see climate-related imagery pervasive in all media.
A powerful collaboration between Harvard Chan C-CHANGE and the Environmental Media Association (EMA) focuses on integrating climate themes into movies, TV series, shareable content, and other media so that climate challenges and solutions become part of everyday conversations. The more audiences learn and talk about climate change, the more they are empowered to take action and protect their future.
Together we aim to educate the Hollywood community to help show runners, producers, writers, and influencers integrate action-oriented climate imagery and messaging into productions. EMA brings deep and vast connections throughout the industry and we bring science and proven success with adapting messaging to Hollywood audiences.
We’re focused on providing:
- Short workshops
- Focus groups
- Tip sheets and case studies
- Consultations with executives at studios, agencies, and writers rooms
- Developing quick facts for social content and further distribution
- Brainstorming sessions with writers, show runners, actors, and influencers
- Ongoing counsel for projects in production
- Panel discussions about timely health issues at industry events
