Comedy for Climate Change

Screen Shot 2016-02-18 at 9.03.25 PMHumor is an underutilized tool in the area of climate change, yet comedy has the power to connect people, ideas, information and innovative ways of thinking.  CU Boulder’s Inside the Greenhouse (ITG) is experimenting with creative climate comedy and is hosting a Comedy & Climate Change short video competition.

In this call, ITG is seeking to harness the powers of climate comedy through compelling, resonant and meaningful short videos (up to 4 minutes in length).

The winning entry will receive a cash prize, and be shown during the upcoming ‘Stand Up for Climate: An Experiment with Creative Climate Comedy’ night on March 17 at 7:30pm on the University of Colorado campus. The event will feature a range of comedic approaches, including stand up comedy, sketch and situational comedy, and improv.

The submission deadline has been extended to Tuesday, March 8.  View the eligibility and submission guidelines here.
