Cameron Mackay, filmmaker and climate change researcher
And if all of that wasn't enough, we thought you'd find Cameron's work really interesting. His expedition work has taken him to polar, mountain and jungle environments where he has led youth groups and students. Driven by a desire to engage new audiences with stories of environmental change, he has conducted research, composed music and produced documentary films which have been shown by the BBC, at IMAX theatres and at film festivals across Europe.
