The Breakdown with Waterbear Network
At Earthrise we get asked the same questions again and again by our audience: How did we get here? And more importantly, how can we as individuals take action?
Complicated by complex graphs and data, scientists have failed to tell the story of climate properly. The Breakdown aimed to unpack climate change in an accessible, engaging and empowering way.
The Breakdown became one of WaterBear Network’s most watched shows.
The show was also viewed over 300,000 times on YouTube by the Earthrise audience. The supporting social impact campaign was liked by 75,000 people and included explainer content, cut-downs of the full show, quotes and behind-the-scenes content. To celebrate the shows launch, Earthrise hosted a screening at Screen on the Green for friends and collaborators with a panel from the series contributor Fatima Ibrahim hosted by Alice Aedy.
We think one of our YouTube comments says it best: “The design of this series is stunning, and it delivers the often frightening topic of climate change in an easily digestible and inviting way that leaves me feeling empowered and inspired to learn and do more.”
We believe stories have the power to change the world. Do you?
