Amphibious Screens :The Sustainable Cultures of Water Seminar Series
Amphibious Screens: The Sustainable Cultures of Water Seminar Series, hosted by The University of Warwick, begins on January 27th. This online series delves beneath the surface to connect new research ideas from around the world with professionals, practitioners, activists as well as the cultural sector in four online seminars.
You can join one or all of these free seminars to understand more about how the film and TV industries in Miami, Reykjavik, Cornwall and Venice are deeply connected to a watery sense of place, water pollution, water scarcity and water cultures.

Hear from Dr Marta Guerriero, Associate Professor; Dr Jess Savage, Assistant Professor; Todd Olive, current MASc student; and Šimon Michalčík, a final-year GSD and Business Studies student, about the barriers young people face when engaging with climate action. During the session, Šimon shares his experiences with Plant-for-the-Planet, an international NGO supporting reforestation across the world; and Todd tells us about the Warwick Climate Negotiating Forum (WCNF), a simulation of the UN’s global climate negotiations.
