There are people who face the climate and environmental crisis with confidence and counter the status quo with inspiring solutions from politics, agriculture, business and the energy sector. They join forces, stand up to seemingly overpowering corporations and politicians and work tirelessly for a future worth living and the protection of the last wild areas and habitats. In doing so, they inspire and touch others with their courage and visions.
The films in this section put a face to these people and share their stories. They show innovative and positive examples of what we can achieve with ideas and a sense of community and how we can shape and change society in a sustainable way.

The film "Blue Heart" documents the struggle to protect the Albanian Vjosa, the longest dam-free river in Europe; the efforts to protect the endangered Balkan lynx in Macedonia; and it shows the month-long sit-in strike of women in Kruščica, Bosnia and Herzegovina who stand guard day and night to protect the only source of drinking water in their community.
"Blue Heart" will be shown worldwide from 28 April 2018 in a campaign led by Patagonia. The premiere of the film will take place at the Idbar Dam in Bosnia and Herzegovina, followed by screenings throughout the Balkan Peninsula and in large and small cities around the world.
