Academic Testimonials for HWCG
"Andrew is a highly creative and talented film maker, focusing on today's sustainability issues. He gave a Director's screening of his beautifully-shot film, 'High Water - Common Ground' to our undergraduate and post graduate students at Brunel University London to help them understand the issues around working with communities as they take ownership of their environment and flood risk. His film is shown to all our cohorts and has proven to be valuable to our undergraduate and post graduate programmes. As a teaching aid, the film inspires our students to think differently about solutions to flood risk and climate change adaptation generally, and how work with others in partnership. I've been really impressed by his approach to help others understand environmental challenges, and I am excited that Andrew is inspiring many to take action, through his insights and creativity."

"Leeds Beckett University Landscape Architecture department (where I teach) and the University of Leeds research charity United Bank of Carbon (where I am Business Development Co-ordinator) recently arranged a joint showing of the film, followed by a panel debate featuring professors from both institutions and experts from Arup, Environment Agency and the flood modellers Thomas Mackay.
The film proved to be a great attractor, and the event was was quickly sold out. The audience included students and staff from all the above organisations, plus many others - including community groups concerned with flooding and/or green infrastructure. Opinion in the room about the film was very positive: It laid out the issues clearly in a positive, even inspirational, fashion, allowing the debate to begin at a high level and develop quickly into areas interest. I would urge anyone interested in natural capital, green infrastructure, trees, flooding, climate change or community action to watch the film - and, ideally, organise a viewing with a similar debate to follow."
