Amplifying childrens voices on climate change: the role of participatory video

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time with the greatest impacts being felt by poor and marginalised people living in developing countries, and particularly children. While children have done very little to cause the changing climate, they will inherit its problems. This puts them in the precarious situation of having to cope with both current and future impacts from increasing climate shocks. The motivation to amplify children's voices around their adaptation needs formed the basis of a participatory video action research project that took place in Nepal in 2008.
