A group of enthusiastic Bequia students recently completed a video production workshop titled “Lights, Camera, Eco-Action!” led by prominent Vincentian filmmaker Akley Olton. 

The workshop, part of local NGO Action Bequia’s “Phil D. Whale” programme, focused on encouraging plastic and metal drink container collection and recycling, empowered these young minds to create impactful content promoting environmental awareness.

The “Phil D. Whale” programme is a cornerstone of Action Bequia’s environmental initiatives.

Under Olton’s expert guidance, the students collaborated to develop and produce compelling mini-documentaries that addressed their environmental concerns and proposed solutions for a more sustainable Bequia.

“These young filmmakers impressed me with their creativity, storytelling abilities, and their passion for the environment,” Olton said.

“Their work offers a fresh perspective on the environmental challenges faced by the Caribbean region, and will serve as a powerful tool for positive change.”

Olton expressed his gratitude to John Burstein and the Action Bequia team for inviting him to facilitate the workshop and acknowledged their dedication to fostering environmental stewardship among Bequia’s youth.
