The Jacob Burns Film Center is proud to partner with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)-led Equator Initiative to celebrate Earth Day 2024, presenting a program of short films exploring the work of the winners of the 14th Equator Prize.
The UNDP Equator Initiative recognizes Indigenous peoples and local communities from around the world. These short films explore the winning organizations work, demonstrating how innovative, nature-based solutions can enable communities to achieve their own local development goals, while building community resilience, even in a time of economic, environmental, political, and public health shocks.
This year’s awardees join a network of 275 communities who have been recognized since 2002.
After the screening join Anna Medri, Team Lead and Partnerships Advisor for the Equator Initiative, in conversation with some of this year’s winners. It promises to be a life affirming evening, highlighting the power of community resilience around the world.
