Documenting ecological crises around the world for TV and film is more important than ever, but doing this whilst having minimal impact on people and planet can be a struggle. As a result, practises are changing. Reduction in helicopter airtime and alternative approaches to animal treatment are just two practises that can lessen the harmful impact that productions have.
With a jam packed panel of media veterans on our Campfire Stage (sponsored by Hydro Flask), we took a look at the trials, tribulations and successes around documenting the natural world.
Lucy Siegle was joined by:
Megan Hine - wilderness guide, expedition leader and producer
Jeff Wilson - multi-award winning wildlife Director from Silverback Productions
Sam Bleakley - filmmaker, geographer, longboard surf champion and lecturer in sustainable tourism
And Ed Scott-Clarke - CNN Producer and champion of sustainable production methods.
The Blue Earth Summit is a movement and community driving positive action for our natural world.
In October 2021, we brought together over 800 changemakers, business leaders, content creators and activists for our inaugural Blue Earth Summit event in Bristol. It involved 2 days of talks, workshops, inspiring conversations and outdoor activities around 3 big ideas:
Living and working sustainably
Protecting our outdoor playgrounds
And Inspiring a healthy outlook
This podcast shares those ideas with you by bringing you the best talks and panel discussions from Blue Earth Summit Year 1 at The Old Marble Factory
