Spanning the next 10 years, 8 Billion aims to bring together faith, arts and science communities to paint an intimate portrait of the Earth with a series of stories about how humans all over the world celebrate and protect nature.

In the first phase of the project, filmmakers and storytellers are invited to upload their films to the platform. The invitation will be extended this summer to contributions from the wider community, encouraging groups anywhere and everywhere to make a film and share their stories.

Ellen Windemuth, CEO and founder of WaterBear, said: “We are proud to be spearheading this initiative with our partners Off the Fence and the WWF. This initiative will demonstrate how important it is for each of us to tell stories from our own point of view. Together we will create a movement that unites millions of people in a joint effort to preserve natural habitats and biodiversity.”

Allard Stapel, chief of external affairs at WWF Netherlands, said: “For 60 years WWF has strived for a world where people live in harmony with nature. In that time, WWF has often shown examples of this but rarely asked people to tell these stories themselves. With 8 Billion we hope to provide a platform where communities all over the world can share their stories and can be heard.”
