About this collection

The Sound & Vision collection showcases audiovisual content on the human-environment relationship, on topics ranging from waste and energy to indigenous rights and water conflicts. You can filter for subcategories such as environmental podcasts, “TED Talks” by environmental practitioners, and video portraits in which Rachel Carson Center fellows introduce their research. Of particular interest are the Environmental Film Profiles, which include more than 250 trailers or full stream content on issues including energy, waste, global warming, resource conflict, and sustainability. The Environmental Film Profiles have been made possible, in part, thanks to a collaboration between the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society and the German nonprofit ECOMOVE International, and is supplemented by selections from environmental film festivals, such as the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Tales from Planet Earth.
