Since 2007 Selva Rica has been offering environmental filmmaking workshops all over the world training artists, students, and community activists to generate digital media that influences our relationship to nature in a positive way. We have worked in places as distant and diverse as New York, Costa Rica, Peru, Ireland, and Panama bringing creative minds together to form a collaborative network of sustainable education through media making. Now more than ever we need sustainable education programs that lie within the nexus of local and global action. It is not enough to just make local initiatives work, we have to share what we learn with others through media so that knowledge about sustainable living may be replicated and improved.
