In May 2022, countries and organisations will gather for the Global Platform on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), which looks at reducing risks from multiple hazards, including climate change.

Earthbeat, in collaboration with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), has launched a DRR film challenge in the run-up to the event.

Young people (age 14-32) are invited to submit their short films on actions that show local to international cooperation to reduce disaster risk and improve resilience.

Films are especially encouraged that tell stories of disaster risk reduction initiatives led by and for youth, women and indigenous groups in the worst-affected areas.

Films can be up to 3 minutes in length and the deadline for submitting films is 18 February 2022.

Entries can come from any country in the world, and should be in English or with English subtitles.

From risk to resilience

The entries will be shortlisted by the judging panel and the top entries will be uploaded to YouTube and promoted through Earthbeat’s website and social media.

Winners will receive a filming kit to improve their smartphone filmmaking
