After the success of last year’s See you at the Sea Festival, the Your Shore Beach Rangers project wanted to ensure the festival continued this year with an online film festival; created by young people, for young people and it’s not too late to get involved. The idea is that young people create short films promoting their ‘Blue Voice’ - that means anything to do with you and the sea. Perhaps you’re an artist who engages with the ocean through pictures or paintings and you want to share what you do with other young people. Maybe you are concerned about an issue facing the ocean such as the increased use of facemasks and want to raise awareness. Whatever way you engage with the sea, if you can make a film about it, you could be part of See you at the Sea Festival 2020.
Jenn Sandiford, Youth Engagement Officer for the Your Shore Beach Rangers project, says:
“Young people are the future in conservation, so we want to hear their Blue Voice. Young environmentalists are on the rise and we want to embrace this and have them engage with other young people around Cornwall. We couldn’t hold See you at the Sea Festival the way we did last year, but we didn’t want to lose that vision, so the idea for this year’s online film festival was born. We want to hear from everyone; artists, musicians, shore experts, public speakers, however you engage with the environment and wish to spread your message.”
