Hi BITL Friends and Partners,
We are excited to announce a new chapter for Before It’s Too Late! In September, we moved to Miami to bridge a unique climate leadership partnership between the MIT and Miami communities. Here are ten key updates from our first three months in Miami:
"Miami Rising To Fight Climate Change" 360 VR Film Series
This fall, 9th and 10th grade students in the BITL Internship elective course at Cushman High School created a 360 film series to highlight three communities - faith, vulnerable and solar business - that are already addressing climate change in South Florida. They showcased this series at the Art Miami Fair in the first week of December.
View their videos on Youtube, and use a mobile VR headset if you have access:
Introducing “Miami Murals: Climate Awakening”
We are excited to announce our bold new murals campaign to motivate over 1 Million Actions to address climate change in South Florida. Murals will be created in twelve diverse Miami neighborhoods affected by or leading solutions for climate change, and they will be animated with augmented reality to bring the narratives and call to actions to life. An inspiring cohort of local artists, from muralists to interactive media artists, will be selected to create this monumental mural series. Miami Murals is led by an incredible team of local nonprofits and businesses including Before It's Too Late, The CLEO Institute, Mad Studios, SWARM, The Ledge Media and Unconventional.
Help Us Spark This Movement Before It’s Too Late:
We are so grateful to every friend and partner that we’ve collaborated with on our journey. Your ideas, research and support helped us shape our social theory of change - the vision that we can change attitudes and behaviors by emotionally engaging people through the message and the medium.
We are excited for the year ahead and what Miami has to offer.
Founder & Executive Director, BITL
