The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., organises a screening of films in Ljubljana as part of the EU Youth Cinema: Green Deal project.
EU Youth Cinema: Green Deal is an innovative project dedicated to a sustainable Europe, presenting the European Union’s green objectives in a film context. The project contributes to the evaluation and understanding of EU Green Deal among young viewers and provides a platform for a multicultural approach to the Green Agenda. The project engages young audiences in particular, addressing environmental challenges and promoting green activities and lifestyles.
The project will offer young people and teachers a programme of film and educational activities over a period of 24 months. Film screenings and streaming content will be accompanied by didactic material and thematically linked discussions, workshops and lectures.
The programme is based on a carefully selected collection of 25 European films, which will be screened between May 2022 and May 2024 both in cinemas and via online streaming platforms.
The project is implemented in Slovenia, Austria, Croatia, North Macedonia and Romania. All films will be subtitled in local languages and are suitable for young people aged 10 and over.
1. GENERATION CHANGE: WHO SAVES THE WORLD? | AUSTRIA (2022) | DIRECTED by Vanessa Böttcher| DOCUMENTARY | 80 MINUTES | RECOMMENDED AGE: 14 YEARS OLDER, with English subtitles|
Sarah, a young environmental activist, has been campaigning for a better world for years, but is now questioning her activism. Why is so little still happening? What can she, one person, really achieve? Is it still possible to stop climate change? With these and other questions in mind, she embarks on a train journey across Europe to meet young activists who are successfully campaigning for solutions in their own countries. Even in a pandemic, there is a glimmer of hope and for every problem there is a solution.

Vice-President of the LZS, responsible for the work of the Expert Service. Hunters carry out many other nature conservation activities besides hunting, but we are still most often associated with hunting. We often have to answer the question of how hunting can be nature conservation. Because man has deeply interfered with the cultural landscape, he has affected the mechanisms by which the natural balance is maintained. This has left some animal species without natural predators and would have become extinct if the natural balance had not been regulated. If we had left nature at the mercy of economic trends and needs, it would have been different a long time ago. These are all reasons why we can rightly say that hunting is nature conservation.
