Youth, climate change and human rights – ‘Dakota’ Animation

Climate change threatens the effective enjoyment of our human rights in Northern Ireland. That is the message that carries through two animated films produced as part of a collaborative project between the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission and Queen’s University Belfast. MA Broadcast students led projects to create two animations, ‘Nia’ and ‘Dakota’ that explore climate change from a youth perspective and through a human rights lens.
