Finding Balance: Our Future, Our Forests – MediaStorm

Forests are an integral part of our lives and our future. But unless we can see them as more than an environmental issue, their future may be in jeopardy. See the project at

Here’s a new multimedia piece from the team at MediaStorm that I thought readers here would like to view.

In the run up to the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, MediaStorm were asked to produce this video which would highlight the importance of forests and their role in our global ecosystem.

From the MediaStorm Site:

Part of the UNFF’s mission is to change the way policymakers view forest-related issues. Previously forest preservation was considered an environmental issue. In order to create more lasting and far-reaching change, the UNFF believes it is necessary to also include social and economic values in all discussions. Forests are, in many complicated ways, interconnected with the lives of people and cultures. This landscape view is critical and therefore needed to be an integral part of the project.”

It’s a beautiful video with some dreamlike sequences and stunning images, whilst retaining a strong and important message. Take 15 minutes of your day to watch it.

If you can spot which images of mine are in there, I will take my hat off to you!
