Green Hub- youth and community fellowship and video documentation centre


Organization : North East Network (NEN)


Location : Arunachal Pradesh,Assam,Manipur,Mizoram


Project Description

The Green Hub is a collaborative initiative of North East Network and Dusty Foot Productions, New Delhi which aims to engage and empower the local youth from different communities’ mainly remote tribal areas, to conserve biodiversity in the north-eastern region of India, using the visual medium. It is emerging as a unique space which employs innovative ideas of people from different regions through practices for the management and conservation of protected areas.

The Green Hub is the first youth and community based video documentation organization which involves skilled people who help in recording the nature and environment and the wildlife as well as biodiversity. It helps in providing a bigger platform to have wider windows of learning and exploring their potential.

The main thrust of the project is to encourage people from different areas of the northeast like Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Assam, and Mizoram for sharing indigenous knowledge and also working for social change in the region. The visual documentation through photography has provided employment opportunities to the people to learn as well as explore the diversity of northeast. The overall vision is also to reach out to the community, and connect young individuals, with other individuals, organizations and groups working with conservation to form a web of learning, sharing, action and opportunity.

Every year, 20 youths are selected from the northeast for the fellowship at the Green Hub, to train them in video documentation, especially in the wildlife and biodiversity sector. The fellowship includes a 10-month internship period with two months residential training at Tezpur. Video documentation through Short films are being made which includes natural sites, biodiversity conservation initiatives, human elephant conflict as well as indigenous species.

The Festival is an integral part of the larger Green Hub programme which allows for participation of the youth and creates opportunities for the people to come out with ideas that help in conserving nature. It also connects and supports associated schemes and developmental projects as well and helps to raise awareness among the communities.
