In 2019, the Scottish Forum on Natural Capital and Scottish Natural Heritage joined forces with business, education and the arts industry to offer young people the opportunity to share work inspired by Scotland’s nature.

The Short Film Competition sought entries that combined passion and creative talent with the latest facts to make a powerful case for why businesses should invest in nature. We looked for films that reinforced the message that as well as gaining customer loyalty and goodwill by being environmentally-conscious, businesses are also dependent on a healthy natural world, often relying on nature to provide goods and services.
