In February thru April 2023, Ohai Tonga is delighted to offer the "My Climate Change Story Master Class" workshop to build capacity for youth in Fiji, Tonga, Tuvalu, Kiribati, and Nauru.
The “My Climate Change Story Master Class” class will teach participants how to create their own video and photographs to show how climate change is impacting their community. Through an engaging series of classes taught by professional photographers/videographers, artists, and international climate change experts, participants will learn skills to create a compelling “My Climate Change Story.” Participants should have access to a smartphone that can record video or photos. The videos and photos created by participants may be shown in local and international forums.
We recorded the Introductory Session for those of you who were not able to attend. Kindly watch the Opening Session below. Also posted on this page is Activity # 1, which will help you design your video. Thank you.
