The first sparks of Wildfire were struck in 2008, when eco architect and film maker Leonie Mervis, created Ecobuzz an online TV channel to explore the use of new media and film as a way of sharing green ideas and encouraging environmental action.
Today Leonie collaborates with a dynamic network of film makers, designers and environmental educators, volunteers and activists who are passionate about using their skills to create a better world for all. They bring to each project a deep understanding of environmental issues and their skills in viral video campaigns, documentary films, digital design, environmental education initiatives and sustainable design solutions.
