School Film Competition 2019

EXPLORING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

The School Film Competition is back with a new exciting topic.

Protecting the environment and preserving our natural resources are vital for the future of our planet. This year, we invite you to explore the topic of sustainability by considering one or more of these questions in your film:

  • What can we do to protect our planet and environment?
  • Why should we care about sustainability?
  • What can be done in our local community and in our schools to protect the environment?
  • Are there any innovative ideas or concepts from Germany that could be adapted to Australia?
  • Has Australia employed any measures that could be used in Germany?
