Adaptation Now is a documentary project on the communities dealing with the leading edge of climate change. We seek to amplify the voices of farmers facing harsher droughts; of mountaineers who grapple with shorter winters; of coastal dwellers inundated by rising seas; and of the everyday climate heroes working to give us hope.
We are already feeling the impacts of climate change. Across the board, the largely stable, predictable climate in which we have thrived is changing. While political deliberations linger, the altered environment begins to make its mark, disrupting the lives of ordinary people.
For too many, however, climate change remains an abstract and distant concept. Many of its first victims are still ill-informed about its existence. Through film we can change this. We can empower communities with the knowledge to make informed decisions. It is time for a new narrative on climate change.
