What is Redford Center Stories
Hosted by The Redford Center, Redford Center Stories is an environmental storytelling Contest designed for teachers who are ready to empower their middle school students to re-imagine materials use, production and waste in the 2019-2020 school year. Redford Center Stories celebrates young minds by offering a showcase for students to share their ideas through a Visual Storytelling Contest, with winners announced on Earth Day 2020. This project-based approach to learning sparks curiosity, invites creativity, builds confidence and fosters teamwork as students seek solutions to real-world environmental problems. Join us in elevating youth voices and inspiring the next generation of environmental leaders.
In 2005, Robert Redford and his son James Redford co-founded The Redford Center to harness the power of film, video and new media to engage people through inspiring stories that galvanize environmental action. Over the years The Redford Center has produced, funded, and fiscally sponsored over 40 impact-driven film projects that showcase individuals taking action to protect and restore the planet.
