The Environment Memory:
A thorough environmental documentary project, that aims to document environmental topics and events, by recording video presentations with environmental figures who left their environmental imprints and impacts on the map of the Sudanesee Environment Conservation Society.
The importance of this project lies in presenting what can be benefited from in developing the environmental understanding and awareness of the Sudanese human being, as well as addressing and presenting the positives and negatives, the positives to disseminate and the negatives to avoid, which supports the environmental communication process through “lessons learned and best practices”.
The life and activity of the environmental figures is documented using modern means of sound and image in the form of a creative art that transcends the recognized stereotypes of traditional interviews and dialogues.
