Hi, I'm Gyanna. I'm an Eco-Dfndr.

I am a student from Royal Oak Middle School in Victoria B.C. I enjoy playing soccer, spending time with my friends, and listening to music. I became interested in this camp after my teacher suggested it, and enjoyed it when I arrived. I wanted to come to this camp to learn about filming as well as helping the environment. I also wanted to bring serious ecology issues into the light and spread awareness.

Date without water

I wrote and created this film with Nic and Taio.

In the future, water is scarce. You save the water you need for only the most important things. How does this affect young people trying to go on a date? A humorous look at a potentially frightening problem.

Now what?

You can be a DFNDR!

Environmental activists aged 12–15 are invited to apply for a one week all expenses paid Environmental Action Camp on Denman Island, BC. Spend a week creating compelling media – music, drama, documentary, and dance – all with a focus on defending the environment.
