Full-service production company Glasgows has been working with the Environment Agency after winning the chance to create ten films about caring for water.

Glasgows’ concept – Small Changes, Big Picture – is designed to inform and encourage the public to make small changes at home in respect of caring for water, and to get involved in local action groups and partnerships.

It also encourages the public to have their say in the Environment Agency’s Challenges and Choices public consultation, which launched on 24 October.

The films cover a series of topics including plastic pollution, chemicals in the water environment and the climate crisis. Each one showcases the small but impactful changes people can make at home and at work to make a difference to their environment.

A spokesperson for Glasgows said: “The films are designed to encourage the public to feel more connected to their local water, and have an understanding that if we all take care of our water on a local level, this really can impact our futures and our children’s futures.

“The key message is that we can all play a part, no matter how small, in being the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than we found it.”

Glasgows’ Producer, Louise Jones, said “Whilst the films cover crucial topics, it was important that the tone was approachable, light-hearted and encouraging rather than dictatorial.

“We ensured that the voiceover artist and all on-screen contributors came across as informative yet passionate about each cause.

“This was actually highly infectious when making the films, and resulted in me starting to make small changes at home myself – being cautious at what I pour down the sink as one example!

“The films support the audience in understanding how taking care of water at a local level. Even following the simplest of measures, can make a real difference now and in the future.”

Glasgows’ Small Changes, Big Picture films will feature on Environment Agency TV, and can also be seen on YouTube.

To take part in the public consultation, Challenges and Choices, visit the Environment Agency website. The consultation closes on 24 April 2020.
