The ‘EcoClip’ Video Competition invited young people from the Indian Ocean Region (Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, Seychelles, Réunion and Zanzibar) to produce short films about sustainable development on their respective islands. In December 2014 Sazani partnered with ISLANDS to organise and deliver the Zanzibar component of this competition. The aim was for 5 young people to express themselves by producing a short film on methods of best practices or their vision of sustainable development in Zanzibar.
Preparations to launch the competition began as early as December 2014 once Zanzibits agreed to deliver the media training and to assist us with initial publicity. The winner was selected to fly to Mauritius for the next edition of “Ile Courts” festival.
