Impact Narrative

Jennifer’s proposal for sharing OVER:

“I am a third year geography university student at Chester and also work at the student union. I would share books across campus using various channels to reach as many people.

As a source of promotion, reactions to reading the book could be filmed, and the film would show people’s shock and concern, with the book being shown at the end. A second film could be made to show the images alongside daily environmental issues to reduce the distance between the images and the reader. For example recycling, excess packaging, leaving lights and taps on. Overpopulation would be a harder theory to convey but the images speak for themselves in this book. These short films would then be published on social media forums.”
