Hosted by CBBC’s Rhys Stephenson, join BAFTA Kids for an important conversation for children with programme makers about the actions they're taking both on and off screen to help save the planet.

BAFTA is doing more than ever before as part of a wider commitment to sustainability.  In 2020, BAFTA’s Film Awards were carbon neutral and since 2011, BAFTA has been the guardian of albert, a project that brings together the film and television industry to reduce their environmental impact and inspire audiences to act for a sustainable future. 

The environment and the current climate crisis are high on the priority list for young people who are increasingly using their voice and power to tell those in authority that this is a subject that matters to them.  BAFTA wants to support this audience by demonstrating what the screen industries are doing to reduce their impact; how the Film/TV industries can have a positive impact through the stories they tell; inspire young people to make a difference by talking about what action they can take.   Join in a game of Play Your Carbon Right and explore a case study about how storylines and a change in production techniques can all have impact.     

Panel includes series co-ordinator for EastEnders and albert trainer, Suzanne Dolan, Lucy Murphy, Director of Kids Content, UK & IRL at Sky, and Gary Matsell, Head of Production, Channel X.

Free to register. Suitable for all ages but recommended for 8-14 years. We encourage teachers, parents and carers to sign up on behalf of their class/child. 

This event is part of Alexandra Palace’s Big Schools – Green Screen Champions. Find out more here
