Europe/Brussels -The Green Up Film Festival is about to engage all Europeans in the first ever online documentary film festival on topics relevant to Green Economy which include sustainable development, water resource management, food and agriculture,
rational consumption & fair trade. 26 documentaries can be watched free of charge from
the festival website.
films and the festival website itself invite viewers to learn and
reflect on what they can do to help preserve our environment.
Impressions and ideas can be shared online through social media.
In order to expand the Green Economy
discussion to European governmental institutions as well as
individuals, the Green Up Film Festival takes advantage of engaging in
Brussels - the so-called European capital. A special Ciné-ONU screening
at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel on 10 October marks the start of the
festival, with subsequent off-line events at the Palais des Beaux-Arts
of Brussels on 21 and 23 October.
The Green Up
Film Festival is organised by "Wake Up!" with the support of the
GreenUp! Campaign powered by the United Nations Environment Programme
(UNEP - www.unep.org/greenup).
