United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and BELLA GAIA are launching a short film titled Hotspots to Hopespots - a multimedia presentation of scientific data and images on the planet's changing environment.
Directed by award winning filmmaker, music producer and classically trained violinist, Kenji Williams, the film highlights this year's World Environment Day theme of food waste and showcases visualizations of Hotspots that have turned into Hopespots. These images are available on the UNEP Live portal, which is based on research led by UNEP's Division of Early Warning and Assessment (DEWA). The film, which also features data produced by NASA, BELLA GAIA and the Brooklyn-based data visualization company, Culture Shock, illustrates earth science stories from around the globe. The partners worked together to show real time anthropogenic activity spanning decades.
