The following is a guest blog from Surbhi Sarang, volunteer from tve, a charity that works with partners worldwide to make and distribute films which inspire change.
I am excited to share that media charity tve is running its first competition for films made by companies about their sustainability initiatives – the closing date for entries is fast approaching so if you have a great film, work for a best practice company, and want to share your innovative ideas please get in touch.
I’m a volunteer at tve and have been working on the Awards since March. During this time I’ve learned a lot about some of the amazing accomplishments (and challenges!) of the world of corporate social responsibility.
We are encouraging companies globally to use film and animation to share best practice on their corporate sustainability initiatives. We are looking for inspiring, captivating short films (of less than 10 minutes duration) about your company’s corporate sustainability initiatives. There are 3 categories: environment, community investment, and inspiring good governance.
We’ve just two weeks to go until the deadline to submit films closes and we are delighted to have entries from Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia and Europe. We are keen to reflect what African companies are doing in this arena, and particularly looking for those. But if you work for any company with a film that has been made in the last three years about your sustainability initiatives, please contact me at [email protected] or check out our website at http://tve.org
Just a bit about tve – for 28 years now we’ve been working with networks and partners around the world to produce and distribute films on the environment and development. We tell the world’s most important stories from Rwandan soil scientists trying to revive their country’s degraded ecosystem to the challenges of child survival in sub-Saharan Africa. Set up in 1984 by the United Nations Environment Programme, WWF and the UK broadcaster Central Television, tve’s mission is to inspire change for a fairer, greener world.
