The meatrix

This 5min-animation clip is a well-pointed metaphor of the Matrix movie - a very popular movie to youth- having animals as protagonists. It raises the issue of current unsustainable practices in food production, and livestock breeding, in a very straightforward and appealing way. The clip was awarded in a series of Festivals and it is accompanied by 3 more clips: The Meatrix II about the dairy industry; The Meatrix II 1/2 about food processing and a trailer.
Language: English & 7 more languages with Subtitles in 33 languages!
In the meatrix website you will find a wealth of interactive e-games, educational materials as well as shopping tips to help make our dining table become more sustainable.

Turtles in Trouble

An 8 min long animated training film for tourists visiting the Mediterranean coasts, produced by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS UK) with MEDASSET\'s cooperation. The DVD raises awareness of tour agencies tourists about sea turtle-friendly actions they can take to mitigate tourism impacts on turtles and nesting beaches in the Mediterranean. Of course the condensed, cartoon-like film may be rather useful to ESD Educators as well.
Language: English
Visit also MEDASSETs website and download other useful material on turtles.

The story of Stuff

We invite you to visit this popular website and download the 20 minute long video “What is the Story of Stuff” (~50MB).¬†
It is quite USA-centered, however it is nicely designed, fast-paced, fact-filled, highlighting the underside of production and consumption patterns of western societies in general. Therefore it can be a very useful learning tool for those ESD educators working with such issues. 
Language: English and 10 more languages available
You can download all material and the brochure for students from the campaign website.

Video on Paper Consumption

Interesting ~11 min video produced by the World Rainforest Movement, that may be of use to you and your students. The video, apart from giving the facts, the trends and the costs with respect to the environment & societies, of paper production & consumption worldwide, considers it, actually, as a political issue and urges us to do a little bit more than reducing paper consumption at individual level...

Language: English
