Planet Under Pressure

The award-winning trio that is Moth Collective does it again with their new film, Planet Under Pressure. With the core message: No Water, No Energy, No Food, No Life, this film is extremely relevant today in our changing world. This rich illustrative piece is not only a great example of world-class artistry but also a great example of animation for a cause, which in my opinion we need more of, just like we need more like Moth Collective.

From Moth:

Planet Under Pressure: a new climate security agenda

Larger and richer populations are increasing the pressure on natural resources, further exacerbated by the immediate problem of a changing climate, with serious impacts on water, energy, and food security. The close interdependencies between water, energy and food are multiplying these threats in diverse countries and regions demonstrating that climate security will be an issue for all. An integrated ‘nexus approach’ is helping decision-makers to manage shared resources and achieve truly sustainable development.  

‘Planet Under Pressure’ is the second film Moth Collective has produced for the Global Canopy Programme, a tropical forest think tank working to demonstrate the scientific, political and business case for safeguarding tropical forests as natural capital.
