About this project

Now is the time and this year people around the world are stepping up, jumping in, singing, marching, and generally making a lot of noise to make  sure our environment upon which all life depends is protected. Keep It Safe will document this game change where everyone is a participant and a safe future is the goal. This is very much your story. 

This September the entire world’s attention will be focused on New York City. United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is hosting a Global Climate Summit bringing together Presidents and Prime Minsters to begin a final push for a comprehensive global climate treaty to be signed in Paris at COP20 in 2015. This is the defining moment - It is a critical target for the world, if a treaty is not forthcoming in Paris, due to the UNFCCC process the opportunity will not come again until 2020, which is far too late for meaningful action to address carbon emissions and anthropogenic climate change.

On September 21st over 950 businesses, unions, faith groups, schools, social justice groups, environmental groups and more, are joining together for the the largest public march in history. The People's Climate March is calling for an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution and demand meaningful action to limit climate change caused by human activity.

Keep It Safe will provide a compelling narrative of why this moment has become critical for the massive number of people around the world supporting climate action, with particular emphasis on youth. The film will document this game changing event though behind the scenes interviews with the organizers, United Nations officials, scientists, and people from around the world as well as the historic People's Climate March in New York City on September 21st. 

Combined with the soon to be released free-to-the-world song Keep It Safe, the film will carry the momentum from the People's Climate March forward through 2014-15 as the UNFCCC COP20 in Paris approaches in November.

Donations of $50 dollars and more will receive this limited addition Stop Global Warming necklace handmade from recycled sterling silver.

Risks and challenges

Our target date for completion is set for November 2014, and documentaries are always something of a moving target. With your help we might even see a rough cut before the end of October!
Here are a few thing that you should know:
- It's all or nothing. If the goal isn’t met, no money leaves your account and no rewards will be sent out.
- More money means we can put even more time into the production. Even if the goal is already met, you can still contribute and receive rewards!
The project is already in motion, your help will make it move faster and be the best it can be.
