Understanding that worrying climate and environmental statistics cause a feeling of hopelessness and desperation amongst youth, producers Terri Wynnyk and Jamie Pratt and writer Katherine Koller set out to create Sustainable Me. The video series presents positive ideas and hope to its viewers by giving them creative, actionable examples of ways to engage with sustainability. Over the course of a month, the team recorded in over fifty locations throughout Edmonton, and interviewed forty-four guests, each representing the diversity of the young Edmonton community in their own way. The Sustainable Me team engages their audience through social media and by attending sustainability events and public screenings, and has formed lasting bonds with environmental groups, social justice organizations, and post-secondary institutions throughout Edmonton.
