The film competition “1 Minute To Save The World” challenged young filmmakers to create a one-minute video about climate change. The competition received films from around the globe, with submissions arriving everywhere from Mexico to Vietnam. Judges included Frank Oz (“The Muppet Show”) and Bruce Parry (“Tribe”). “Me And My Bike” won the $8000 Passion Pictures Best Film and Artists Project Earth Youth Visions award.

“Me And My Bike” is a video created by Wafalme, a group of inspired Kenyan teens who communicate various messages through hip-hop. They are also known for creating “Trash Is Cash,” a video offering recycling solutions for their neighborhood, which lacks trash collection – despite the fact that 1.5 tons of trash per day is dumped on their land from Nairobi.

{Most of us just sit and wait for the governments to take action about climate change
Wafalme instead think that together we can, with small actions in our daily life, make a difference.
The most simple and innovative solution is coming from a group of kids in the slums of Nairobi: using bicycles instead of cars!}
