Volunteers for the Powerdown TV Show

  • Print

Cultivate are currently producing a television programme called the Powerdown TV Show to be broadcast on Dublin Community Television. DCTV is an exciting new community television station in Dublin, scheduled to launch in April 2008. The TV programme will also be produced as a DVD and used as a resource in the Powerdown course.

The Powerdown TV Show itself, is a series of ten twenty minute programmes, which aims to inform individuals and groups in the community that climate change and energy scarcity are the critical issues of our time and that they do affect our lives now. The ten programmes, which will follow the themes of the Powerdown course, will outline the issues from different perspectives, and will arm viewers with the knowledge to understand the connection between everyday life, climate change and energy scarcity.  The programmes will be educational, exploring solutions and encouraging responses at the individual, community and national level.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help transcribe videoed interviews with the key thinkers in the fields of climate change and peak oil. There will also be other opportunities to help out as we go in to production.
