CORNWALL’S CLIMATE STORIES

FACTS - INSPIRATION - HOPE

Footage by Fergus Kennedy

Cornwall Climate Care

Cornwall’s Climate Stories is a series of documentaries highlighting the impacts of climate change already being felt across our county, as well as the fantastic local businesses, researchers and community groups working hard to prepare us for the challenges coming our way.

Climate change is going to impact us in Cornwall in ways beyond just extreme weather and sea level rise. The films will focus on specific themes, from housing, transport and fishing to energy, health and farming, looking at how these will be affected in the future.

The series, being produced over the next three years, will also showcase some possible visions of a surprisingly different future - with beavers being used to re-engineer Cornish rivers and prevent flooding, hydrogen fuel being made from offshore wind power, cattle slurry turned into eco-diesel and our fields growing new crops like sunflowers and sweet potatoes.

We aim to screen the films at schools, colleges and community events the length and breadth of the county, as well as online, to instil a feeling of pride and motivation about how Cornwall’s natural resources and ingenuity could make us a great example for the rest of the UK to follow on the critical journey to a low carbon future.

If we’re to have a chance of staying within safe climate limits then all of us will have to be on board. We’re passionate about doing our part to make that happen.

If you have a Cornish climate story you think we should be telling please let us know!

Funding

We have launched this project with a generous bequest from a private individual who cared deeply about nature and the environment. This will enable us to make the first films, and we will then need to raise funds to complete the later episodes. Each 30-minute documentary takes around four months to complete and costs approximately £17,000, including the full production plus creation of educational materials.
