Friends of the Earth - Stories of Solidarity

  • Zoe Shields

in July of 2021 I was commissioned by Friends of the Earth Europe to create 35 moving images for 7 stories, depicting movements of solidarity across Europe and beyond. These images are the result. I hope they bring a little hope to your day in such crazy times :) 1. How crowdfunding for solar panels brought people out of energy poverty in Croatia 2. How a priest created permaculture gardens for disadvantaged youth 3. How volunteers in Poland improved living conditions for the elderly living in poverty 4. How a Spanish feminist farmers network helped local producers thrive during the pandemic 5. How locals in Bosnia prevented big money from creating a hydroelectric dam in their village 6. How a Palestinian activist group empowered women to be sustainable energy leaders 7. How women in El Salvador created local, sustainable food sources.
