Films from LifeMosaic

 Working in close partnership with indigenous movements LifeMosaic
 focuses on producing and disseminating educational films for
 indigenous peoples and rural communities. In partnership with Tebtebba
 and AMAN, we recently produced "Fever", a 4-part climate change
 educational film based on the voices of indigenous peoples in the
 Philippines, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Indonesia. Dubbed into 6
 languages, "Fever" is designed to inform and empower indigenous
 communities across the tropics and to be a tool for grass-roots
 facilitators, helping strengthen local movements in their awareness
 raising and advocacy work on climate change and indigenous peoples
 rights.

2012 Dirty Coal Infotour

In February and March Rock the Boat will be touring the UK with the Beehive Collective’s True Cost of Coal banner to mobilise against new coal in South Lanarkshire and linking up with local struggles to strengthen our campaigns.
