Sisters on the Planet is a series of short videos focusing on the lives of six extraordinary women from around the world who are leading the climate change fight in their communities. Some suggestions for you:

  • Organise a local event in your community, show the Sisters show reel and talk about how you can work together to fight climate change
  • Show the reel at school or if you’re a teacher plan a class around the DVD and get students to write to their local MP

If you enjoyed the Sisters on the Planet series, check out our short films Faces of Climate Change which brings you first-hand accounts from community’s grappling with the impacts of climate change.
