Description

Jones created a customised-edit of the 'Troubled Waters' film for the International National Trusts Organization (5 mins, with subtitles). This was then ideally suited for them to screen on a loop at their exhibit stand at the COP. They also screened the film at three side events, in which there was also representation from UCOMOS, the Arctic Institute, UNHCR, and SPREP. Some of these organisations promoted the film through their social media channels. The audience would be very international, and consist of people connected in some way to climate change advocacy and policymaking. INTO reported feedback that audience members not only acknowledged that climate change can have a profound (even fatal) effect on heritage but also that such global challenges are best presented through personal and compelling stories, conveyed through the arts (like film). This collaboration also led to a formal partnership with INTO in the successful follow-on impact project.
