What if we change? Launching an interactive documentary

This coming Wednesday, IUCN Netherlands lauches the campaign "What if we change?" Imke Gilsing invites CEC members to view the video clip and learn more about this documentary project. 

Creating change through video and the art of storytelling


Whatifwechange.org is an interactive platform about what happens to people when they can make their barren land fertile again. How does it affect a community when nearly extinct animals flourish again? What changes when people make their ecosystem a vibrant source of life again, for themselves and for generations to come? And this story is about you too.
