Jim Bettison & Helen James Award - 2017 Recipient Tim Jarvis
Global adventurer, explorer, environmental scientist and MAN MOUNTAIN Tim Jarvis, in his own words...
Project leader of 25zero, an adventurous and visually spectacular global initiative against the biggest threat facing humanity, climate change. In 2015, 25zero teams summited seven mountains in three continents during the 12 days of the United Nations Climate Change talks (COP21) in Paris, sending footage, images and stories to COP21 where they were used to push decision makers to arrive at a meaningful agreement. The Award will enable development of the phenomenal footage from the climbs into new forms, including a documentary, all of which are designed to educate and engage audiences in the issue of climate change by 'showing' it.
