What’s on?

Super Stage talks

13:15-14:30 Cristina Mittermeier – Enoughness, £12

With passion, conviction, and a zest for life, illustrated by award-winning images and film, Cristina will share the hard-won wisdom she’s gleaned from documenting the far reaches of our planet and its people for decades. Cristina has been a passionate advocate for our natural world since she graduated from the University of Mexico.

After several years of field work, Cristina noticed that what moved people the most were the stories about what she and her fellow researchers were studying—not the actual studies. In 2014, she co-founded SeaLegacy. SeaLegacy harnesses the power of storytelling to raise awareness of critical marine issues and to drive advocacy, but the revolutionary twist is how it bypasses the traditional story pipeline by side-stepping the middleman: media channels

. A Sony Artisan of Imagery, Cristina was named one of National Geographic’s Adventurers of the Year in 2018. She is also the recipient of many awards, including the Mission Award from the North American Nature Photography Association and the Smithsonian Conservation Photographer of the Year Award.

Having grown up in a family of filmmakers, Jack Harries understands the power of storytelling.

Whether campaigning for the future of our planet, directing documentaries, or creating content that spotlights global issues, social empowerment and environmental education are at the core of Jack’s work. As a filmmaker, Jack has travelled across the world to document life on the frontline of the climate crisis. He has worked alongside the likes of Netflix, the WWF, and Waterbear Network as a director and producer, creating visually striking and informative accounts of our planet’s past, present, and future
