We are Eco Dfndrs

Here you will find the short films that were created by the youth who attended the first Eco Dfndrs Summer Camp. Each film is an expression of one or more students' thoughts and feelings about the state of the environment and their fears for the future. These films show young people taking action and speaking out about something they care about.

See the films!
