Are you a woman working in geosciences or geo-engineering?

Tell us about your daily work, your current research and why you would encourage girls to become geoscientists or geo-engineers!

To celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on 11 February (11F), we invite you to record a short video of maximum 2 minutes where you explain your work to a non-specialised public. The ENGIE project aims to encourage girls aged 13-18 years to study geosciences and geo-engineering. Therefore, please try to make the video engaging and fun for this age group!

The videos will be published on the ENGIE YouTube channel and promoted through all our communication channels. We will use the most popular videos to produce a documentary about women in geosciences and geo-engineering.

Guidelines:

  • Please use a language that is easy to understand for secondary school students
  • You can speak, sing or dance and be as creative as you like during maximum 2 minutes!
  • You can use your native language, but in this case, please include subtitles in English to ensure a broad outreach
  • Please use one of the following recommended formats: MP4, MOV, MPEG, AVI or WMV
  • Upload your video to a cloud platform (WeTransfer, Google Drive, etc.) and complete the following registration form
  • The deadline for participation is 31 March 2021
  • We will start uploading the videos on the ENGIE YouTube channel starting from 15 April 2021 and they will be promoted through the project’s communication channels
  • When you communicate about your video, please use the following hashtags to link with the ENGIE project and the initiative 11F: #Tellme11F, #Voices11F, #WomenInScience

ENGIE documentary film:

Contents from the 5 videos which receive the most likes on the ENGIE YouTube, Facebook and Instagram channels will be used to produce a documentary film about women in geosciences and geo-engineering which will be launched in December 2021. In addition, the ENGIE team may select parts of any of the submitted videos as considered relevant for this purpose.  

 

This programme is organised by the EIT RawMaterials funded ENGIE project and is inspired by the Spanish initiative 11F organised each year on the 11th of February, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
