Kaia Rose (BA 2010) is a filmmaker based in New York. She launched her web series, Climate Countdown, in 2015, aiming to break down the complex issue of climate change, and determine what scientists, activists, policy makers and citizens are doing to help solve the problem. We spoke to Kaia about climate change, Climate Countdown, and the recent COP21 summit in Paris.
Wondering what’s going on in Paris? And why you should care? A team of young people working on climate issues from many perspectives—policy, science, media, activism—have created Climate Countdown, a video web series that follows the people who are crafting paths toward a meaningful climate agreement at the Paris climate summit.
Kaia Rose’s remarkable web series (introduced earlier on City Atlas) lets you follow the process and players of next week’s Paris climate talks through the past several months, leading up to and through the talks themselves. Rose’s episodic documentary is an easily understood guide to the story of the century.
Climate Countdown distills the complexity of UN negotiations and climate action into concise and conversational “post-it” sized episodes. We are on a journey to discover what is actually being done to help make 2015 a game-changing year for the climate crisis. With each episode, we build a better understanding of how the pieces fit together and how we, as citizens, can be engaged and empowered as we countdown to Paris.
Kaia Rose knew she didn’t know enough about what the world is doing to solve climate change, so she’s making a film (in several parts, presented on YouTube) for young people like her to watch and learn. And it’s become a record of the steps up to the pivotal meeting about the fate of the planet, which starts at the end of next month in Paris.
Filmmaker Kaia Rose speaking to students in Professor Percival’s Environmental Law class about how to make environmental law films. Ms. Rose currently is filming interviews for her website www.climatecountdown.org. She filmed interviews with students from China, Costa Rica and the U.S. who are in Prof Percival’s class.
Filmmaker Kaia Rose joined the NYC chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby in January 2015. Although concerned and conscious about climate change, Kaia knew little about climate change activism and international climate change policy. She thought, if she herself, a concerned individual, did not know that a pivotal treaty affecting the course of our planet’s future is currently in negotiations, others probably aren’t aware either.
