Description: The Eco Kids Film Initiative (EKFI) is a collaborative project dedicated to environmental education and awareness-raising through film as a medium.
Through films that are entertaining, educational, and above all inspirational it is EKFI’s goal to inspire real change through the children of today and generations to come by promoting a proactive strategy to environmental awareness.
Our vision is to nurture the creation of a growing youth audience that is environmentally aware and active. This growing awareness can lead directly to behavioural changes and indirectly to a spillover to the rest of the family, school or community. We are committed to facilitating the establishment of an educated film viewing culture devoted to media that reflects a sustainable culture-nature relationship infused with a respectful curiosity toward the conservation of our rich biodiversity and natural heritage.
