‘UN International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War & Conflict’.

On 5 November 2001, the UN General Assembly declared 6 November of each year as the International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict.

Though mankind has always counted its war casualties in terms of dead and wounded soldiers and civilians, destroyed cities and livelihoods, the environment has often remained the un-publicised victim of war. Water wells have been polluted, crops torched, forests cut down, soils poisoned, and animals killed to gain military advantage.

The 2017 Documentary Media Month theme is global citizens dedicated to showcasing real peoplereal places and real events from around the world.

The documentary film programme is the 8th Leicester Docfilm Festival.

The Documentary Media Centre project organises events, education based activities and workshops covering 4 areas:

  • documentary film
  • documentary photography
  • documentary audio
  • documentary new media

The pop-up Documentary Media Centre will be hosted on the 1st Floor of 10 Bishop Street, Leicester LE1 6AF.

Conflict Reportage

Project: Conflict Reportage

Conflict Reportage is a project that explores the various documentary media forms for reporting conflicts from 1914 to present day.

I’m interested in the evolving role of ‘Conflict’ or ‘War Reporter’ and their ‘first draft’ of history.


As I find links and articles they are posted on the site

It’s a work in progress so feel free to email your suggestions to me:
