Schools, groups, community, this is your chance to learn more about your bay, its challenges and how you can act to futureproof its assets.

Streamline Media, in partnership with Geelong Sustainability, have released their ‘Connecting your Bay’ short film project to audiences across Victoria. Partnering with over 20 environmental groups across community, industry and Government the Streamline creative team have produced four educational films focusing on the key challenges (litter, marine parts, nutrients and biodiversity) Port Phillip Bay faces into the future.

By distributing the films, associated lesson activities and state-of-the-art virtual reality footage free of charge throughout Victorian schools, collaborative partner networks and the wider community, these resources will encourage greater understanding of the Bay’s assets and threats, and has the capacity to directly influence people of all ages to share stewardship of the Bay into the future.

Streamline Media’s Director Jarrod Boord said “This grass roots’ level focus will build stronger connections between community and partner organisations through greater awareness and appreciation, as well as stimulate on-ground action.

In addition to focusing on the science behind the issues the bay faces, Streamline’s creative team worked with selected environmental organisations to use the films as an effective platform to showcase to the Victorian community the unique and diverse projects and initiatives future proofing your Bay.

Jarrod added “It was a pleasure working with each group, and we took great pride in showcasing and acknowledging their contribution in preserving and enhancing one of Victoria’s greatest assets”.

Geelong Sustainability’s President ‘Vicki Perrett’ said “The project relied heavily on the support and contribution of volunteers drawn from the community and included a significant in-kind contribution from all project partners, especially Streamline Media. Our team is grateful and appreciative of all the support provided to help bring this project to life”.
