The COBIS Eco Film Awards celebrates our students’ commitment to a sustainable future.
In March 2020 our Junior Eco Team have made a short film for entry into the COBIS Eco Film Awards 2020. The film is titled ‘Plastic IS Fantastic’ and is a celebration of the children's commitment to a sustainable future.
Our short film showed the problem of plastic pollution and the strategies that we use at Haileybury Astana to overcome this such as recycling, reusing and making Eco Bricks.
Yesterday, COBIS announced the winners of the COBIS Eco Film Awards competition. There were a total of forty three film entries judged by the National Association for Environmental Education (NAEE) and they announced that Haileybury Astana were the winners of the KS1-2 highly commended category!
The spokesperson from the NAEE, reported this about our film: Plastic IS Fantastic. This film is inspired by Charles Dickens to use Ghosts of Past, Present and Future to emphasise the need to think differently about the waste we produce through our daily activities. This hook engages the viewer, bringing them into the story of the school’s journey towards sustainability and making the film highly engaging and impactful.
The film will be published on the COBIS and NAEE websites and social media platforms, and on the COBIS YouTube channel, as well as being featured in NAEE's Environmental Journal.
