Impact of climate change on a remote Himalayan landscape

Kickstarter Project to produce a documentary to explore climate change, industrial farming and urban migration on remote Himalayan landscapes.

The acceleration of urban migration, coupled with the ravages of climate change, have left many Kumaoni villages abandoned, their landscapes irrevocably altered.  By involving the youth of West Binsar Valley in filming this documentary, they are given an opportunity to learn a professional skill while examining their cultural heritage.

Ryan Stock, Producer

StFF support has helped the project reach its Kickstarter target and you can check it out here.

End Ecocide in Europe

End Ecocide in Europe is a European Citizens Initiative which has proposed a law to the European Union to make ecocide a crime.  An online petition was launched in 2013 which failed to reach its target of 1,000.000 votes, but 112,000 Europeans did vote and a charter will be published on 30 January 2014 calling for the establishment of a European and an International Criminal Court for the Environment.  This charter is the result of a newly formed coalition of organisations advocating for the recognition of environmental crimes. End Ecocide in Europe is among the initiating organisations.

Deepwater Horizon, Fukushima, the Erika oil spill or Rosia Montana are just a few examples of catastrophes which could be prevented through this new law establishing a strict liability for both, decision-makers in business and government, as well as corporations, for such crimes.
