#CreateResponsibly: Collective Action & Movement Building Across Industries & Landscapes

​When we create outside, we have a responsibility to care for the outdoors. The purpose of anything we put out into the world should lead back to building social and environmental responsibility and equity across platforms. #CreateResponsibly is a movement to call on all creators; film-makers, influencers, content creators, artists, production companies, or social media influencers alike, to harness the power of their resources to: 1) amplify bold content-creation practices in nature, 2) utilize their platform and voices to build a collective community of care and to proliferate a sense of shared stewardship, and 3) to collectively create a ‘code of ethics’ in regards to content creation in the outdoors, in light of indigenous practices,  policy, and advocacy. Learn how key partnerships turn collective action into a movement from leaders at the US Forest Service and environmental innovators in film, outdoor industry, and social media landscapes.
