IGUMO featured its film titled ‘From Russia – the New Generation's Global Call to Action’ as part of the eco-project. The film was presented at the World Press Clubs Alliance for Climate international conference dedicated to addressing climate change problems.
This is the first-ever online nonstop conference on a global scale. Organisations from 120 countries and over 23,000 journalists took part in it.
IGUMO became the only Russian representative at the international conference. In their video, students and lecturers of IGUMO shared with the audience how they gradually transform the space of the Institute making it more eco-friendly and change themselves.
Environmental movement at IGUMO adheres to the start-with-yourself principle. Students and their mentors sort trash, use string bags instead of plastic bags, take part in environmental actions and initiate them, and use containers for used batteries installed at the Institute. They also use their professional skills to draw the attention of a wide audience to global environmental problems.
‘From Russia - the New Generation's Global Call to Action’ film featured six creative and professional projects by students, teachers, and graduates of IGUMO:
- a children’s book about pollution of the world’s oceans written by a student Elizaveta Danilkina;
- a photo project on the use of string bags instead of plastic ones by students and lecturers of the Faculty of Photography of IGUMO;
- a graduation photo project on pollution problems by Alina Svinukhova, graduate of the Faculty of Photography of IGUMO;
- models of architectural objects made of eco-friendly materials by MKIK Architecture College students;
- the Global Talents web-portal as a platform for the environmental upbringing of the younger generation;
- posters on ecology by Anna Kharikova, graduate of the Faculty of Design of IGUMO.
All these projects are aimed at conveying the ideas of conscious consumption and caring attitude towards natural resources.
In December, IGUMO will host the students' conference titled ‘Eco-Friendly Habits: Guarantee of Sustainable Development’. Students will prepare scientific presentations and creative projects specially for the event.
You can learn more about each of the implemented projects in the video. It has already been published on the Institute’s YouTube channel. The video has subtitles for Russian-speaking students.
Share this film on social media and motivate others to follow the principles of consuming resources consciously.
