Energy Local

'The Switch' 2012 Winner

The SWITCH Film Competition


We wanted to engage teenagers with the windfarm and get them thinking freshly about renewable energy and climate change. So we invited them to create a 3 minute film that could be used to engage and interest young people like them in what we are doing at Westmill and how it fits into the wider energy picture. This brief fitted perfectly into the media course at Witney and Abingdon college and we worked closely there with Tim Rose and his students. They produced the three prize winning entries below which were shown at an Open Day. The media students are currently developing another set of films for us. We aim to continue this collaboration because it is beneficial to all concerned.
