Make a 1-2 minute video capturing views towards E.O Wilson’s ‘half-earth’ proposal. You will need to let people know about the ‘half-earth’ proposal before making them a part of the video so that they can express informed perspectives. As you film people for their views, ask them to support their position with reasons and suggest other ways to pursue the idea of conservation. End the video with your take on the idea!
