Bhubaneswar, Dec.2 (ANI): Environmental activists organized
a six-day-long Wildlife Travelling Film Festival & Environment Forum here
to create awareness among students.

The theme of the festival is climate change, global warming,
wild life conservation, water conservation, biodiversity conservation and
environmental technology.

“In the last 10 years, we have been going around the country
to 19 locations, holding this kind of a weeklong festival. The festival is not
merely to show the films, but films specially selected nationwide and awarded
films made by Indian film producers on Indian issues,” said Vaskar Rao, Chief

Biswajit Mohanty, a wildlife activist who was part of the
forum, said the event is spreading awareness amongst students about energy
conservation and global climate change.

The films screened at the festival focused on sustainable
technologies, particularly green production and delivery methods, convergence
and fusion of new consumer services, and on the notion of ‘collective goods’
for greater environmental efficiency, which can usher in a new green order.

“We have so many problems in our society, in our
environment. We have environmental pollution. Some of the animals are going to
be extinct. So, these films and programmes are creating a type of awareness
among the people so that they would learn something from that and they would
protect their environment from being polluted,” said Prium Sethy, a participant.
