As nature erodes and the response of human systems is inadequate or destructive, it can seem like the only rational response is despair. Yet if you zoom in from the big picture, a mosaic appears; in amongst the stories of loss there are inspiring stories of regeneration and positive change, with nature making a difference in people’s lives, and people valuing and nurturing their natural environment.

Conservation Optimism presents an evening of artistic performances showcasing inspiring and empowering stories from across the natural world, followed by a screening of prize-winning short films from the Conservation Optimism Short Film competition. The event will end with the announcement of the winners and with a short panel discussion between the festival judges on the importance of filmmaking in conservation.
