Spreading the word
Saving the Planet has two components. One is producing a TV series on innovative efforts in education for sustainable development (ESD) in developing countries of Asia. The other is to build communication capacity within the civil society organisations whose stories we amplify.
For the latter, a five-day regional workshop was held in Khao Lak, Thailand, from 2 to 6 July 2007. It brought together 11 participants from Cambodia, India, Laos, Nepal, the Philippines and Thailand.
The workshop was conducted by a regional resource team drawn from South Asia and Southeast Asia, who brought different perspectives and experiences from broadcasting, media research, advocacy and education backgrounds. They introduced participants to different media formats, options, choices and alternatives, and explored the potential of using digital video production and distribution methods.
