The Melting Iceberg Collective
Promoting international understanding and environmental awareness
A group of alumni from different UWC colleges/schools have created a group called The Melting Iceberg Collective. Inspired by the UWC mission, they are a group of artists and political activists who are committed to using film and media in order to promote international understanding, environmental awareness, civic engagement and human rights advocacy and encourage leadership.
Their animation film Going Under focuses on how climate change will affect Bangladesh and was featured on a PBS TV Special called Planet Forward, which aired on April 15 2009. In 2010 they worked with Red Cross Nordic UWC to film a documentary about the Youth Leadership Course in China.
They will distribute this film around the world in order to share the UWC experience and inspire youth to act and reach their goals.
