Urban Shocks aims to record the challenges faced by young, urban residents in India through short videos depicting things which stress them out and their unique ways of dealing with it.
During the Climate Jamboree Finale, scheduled from 1-3 November 2018, winning entries will be presented to the Minister for Urban Development and 50 shortlisted videos will be showcased.
3.5 billion people - about half of the world’s population - currently live in cities. The number is projected to reach 6.5 billion by 2050 with 95 per cent of urban expansion taking place in developing countries. Propelled by rapid urban growth, India is expected to be home to 7 megacities by 2030. While big cities are synonymous with economic growth, job opportunities and progress, the stresses of living in India’s densely populated cities are manifold. The negative outcomes appear as alarming mental and physical health problems, increasing incidences of rage and distress and ecological disturbances.
Participants must record one key factor of urban living which stresses them the most & illustrate their unique coping strategy through a video clip. Clip submissions are to be accompanied by a short narrative, identifying the unique approach to managing urban stress and providing recommendations towards a solution.
