Join the Redford Center and students, educators, activists, and storytellers/filmmakers across the globe in cultivating collective hope and action, tackling real-world issues, encouraging engagement and advocacy, and bringing people together to inspire and enact solutions. Join us!


Cross-disciplinary, media-rich, free, project-based curriculum designed to empower youth as changemakers exploring and activating the power of storytelling to impact social-environmental justice. Includes films, stories, activities, mini-challenges, and a final film challenge to develop vision and voice.


The Redford Center invites young people to produce a 90-second film to tell their story, raise their voice, and help change the conversation about what environmentalism and environmental justice look like so we can move more people into action. Check out details and celebrations below!

The 2021-22 Redford Center Stories curriculum and Stories Challenge are now open!

Redford Center Stories invites young people to join a journey of learning that builds confidence for learning across any subject and puts them in the director’s seat to discover and articulate their wisdom as authors of humanity’s collective narrative.  As well as digital materials, and a year-long interactive online learning community, this program provides resources and creative challenges to help students explore their local and global environment and create a 90-second film about an aspect of environmental justice that is particularly meaningful to them.

Redford Center Stories Challenge Announcement

Young people across the globe are bringing an infusion of energy to the movement for environmental justice — and we invite your students to be a part of it!  The Redford Center invites young people to tell their story, raise their voice, and help change the conversation on environmentalism and environmental justice through a short video format (90 seconds or less) to move more people into action.

View this year’s Stories Challenge prompts here. 



“It’s time to hand the reins to our youth and encourage them to become the designers of their future. Young people have the optimism, energy, and fresh perspective we need to meet our environmental challenges head-on. We must honor their efforts and support them as leaders.”


– Robert Redford
