And in the capable hands of director Stuart Rideout and the brilliant talent involved, we have a powerful and emotive short that we hope will draw attention to climate change, and the irreparable damage caused to our environment every day.”

Oxfam Supporter, Stephen Fry commented “Climate change is already happening yet not a lot is going on when it comes to doing something about it. When you think about losing what you love because of climate change, it’s a no-brainer to want to see things change for good.


“It’s time our world felt the love. We need to stop climate change so that the things we love are not lost.” The film will premiere on the 11th February just before Valentine’s Day and the public will be asked to ‘Show the Love’ by sharing the film, wearing green hearts and telling the world what they love that could be lost to climate change.

Artists, thought-leaders, millions of supporters, community leaders, students, corporates, politicians, craftivists will make public declarations to show their love in the face of climate change.

Laura Taylor, Head of Advocacy at Christian Aid, said: “Climate change will affect us all, no matter what part of the world we live in.  It will affect the people and the places we love; our friends and family the world over, our trees and plants, the animals and birds we see every day, our very way of life.  Things that we have taken for granted could one day disappear altogether. And it’s the poorest and most vulnerable who are suffering first. Let’s show the love this Valentine’s Day for the world we live in and to encourage others, including world leaders, who make vital decisions about the future of
