LINK invites proposals from suitably experienced environmental film makers to create a short film suitable for social media (twitter, facebook) whose target is a non-specialised audience who have an environmental awareness, including the public and parliamentarians.

We want the film to:

• Present, in an engaging way for a non-specialised but environmentally aware audience, the case for action by the Scottish government to create a more circular Scottish economy to address the climate and nature crises.

• Convey the link between our nature and climate crises, the need for a reduction in our footprints and how a more circular economy can help us do this.

• Motivate viewers to sign a petition calling on the Scottish government to set footprint reduction targets and introduce the CE policies needed to address the climate and nature emergencies.

We anticipate that the film will primarily be viewed on Twitter and Facebook. We might also want to use it at events (physical or online).
