What does environment mean to you?

A project with BTEC Media students from Tower Hamlets College

We worked together over a term in 2008, starting by watching some short films about environmental issues. We sat around together and talked about each of the Otesha theme, Water, Food, Fashion, Media, Energy, Money, Transport and Fairtrade. The students worked in pairs to make films about the issues we’d discussed and what they think about their local environment.

Students made films about recycled fashion, the threatened closure of their youth club, people in their community who come together to cook meals for their neighbours, and comparisons between communities around market stalls with those around big shopping centres.
