About the film
Across Atlantic Canada, coastlines and communities are being adversely affected by climate change, and as temperatures, sea levels and storm surges increase, mitigation and adaptation initiatives are being planned and implemented to navigate the impending storm. Ian Mauro and his multi-media research team used video to document this remarkable story of climate change in Atlantic Canada and conducted over 100 semi-structured interviews with stakeholders across the region, including researchers, local and traditional knowledge holders, government officials and industry.
Using cutting-edge multi-media research techniques, the objective of this project is to assess and present the challenges and opportunities facing Atlantic Canadians, as their environment, cities and municipalities, and mechanisms for societal governance experience often immense and immediate climatic changes. The results of the project suggest four main thematic case studies – focused on climate, communities, mitigation and adaptation – leading to this documentary and multi-media website to showcase the results. Given the high-impact nature of digital media, this project seeks to increase awareness and educational opportunities for Canadians about the real-world experiences and responses of coastal communities, which are on the front lines of climate change.
