Over many weeks, the USF Reclaim team of graduate students met, discussed, planned, filmed, and edited their next campaign video for submission to the Environmental Engineering Science Foundation (EESF)/Association of Environmental Engineers and Science Professor’s (AEESP) video contest. They decided to make a video to mimic other successful social media awareness and fundraising campaigns such as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and the 22-pushup challenge. Using informational clips and a challenge, the video seeks to inspire and challenge watchers to change their habits to #ChangeClimateChange and post their own videos to reach an even larger audience.
Now that you have watched the video, we challenge you to #ChangeClimateChange. Just make a simple 10 second video on your smart phone, post on Facebook/Twitter with the hash tag, and challenge your friends and family. Periodically we hope to create a compilation of the best videos submitted. We hope we can create even more of a global movement to address this grand challenge.
