So many times we ask ourselves “Why voyage for change?” and the answer we get is always “if not now then it will be too late”. Let us be fully aware that we are in the middle of sixth mass extinction because of climate change and perhaps we now have a deadline of 12 years to pull things back or else we will perish as a civilization and with us countless other life forms. For decades now we have known about the “impending crisis” and looked the other way. But now there is a collective awakening of children in the world. We believe that for the first time in the history of human civilization children are having to strike and march all over the world to protect their future and the future of all life on Earth. “Voyage for change” is part of this collective movement of children. Our motive is being the voice of this collective ‘rise in consciousness’ of children across the world. “Voyage for Change” is not merely a film but also a film activism movement, which aspires to transform the prevailing narrative from “the future is in crisis” to “the future of hope”.
There are two kinds of journeys for our young voyagers. The more obvious journeys are the physical ones in which the children travel to the locations where the change-maker or expert is; and the second and rather more important journey is the internal journey of transformation. The internal journey is viewed as the shift in the conscious and the sub-conscious minds of the voyagers. We believe that through “Voyage for Change” we are planting a “seed of change” in the minds of young voyagers and ultimately the viewers.
The core idea of “Voyage For Change” is Mobilizing, channelizing and utilizing the higher emotional quotient of children to inspire humanity.
We embarked on this fantastical journey in 2018 and hope to continue till we feel that we are not needed any more. With an understanding that it is a long “struggle for change” we intend to keep making films to bring the urgent attention of the world towards the crisis we in. Based on the unique perspective of looking at the world “through the eyes of children” we hope to inspire a collective positive action. We feel that sharing of ideas through the medium of cinema is also a very important action. “Voyage For Change” will continue supporting and being the voice of various already existing wonderful “journey’s of change”. As a platform and a collective film movement we believe in the importance of inter-sectionality and interconnections of all positive struggles of change across the world. The interconnection of positive ideas and movement is the key aspect of our approach and narrative of the films. In our films we hope to repeatedly remind the audience that all the issues are connected and we cannot be selective about our support towards them.
