IMPACT – Why should you invest your time in this service project?
A difference in the way media is presented can drastically change how it is perceived. Documentaries tend to be more factual and accurate than the archetypal fictional and/or misconstrued information in many movies, shows, and news channels. One study found that recent environmental documentaries focus on raising awareness about current environmental issues, whereas fictional movies do not. Modern environmental documentaries aim to persuade individuals to preserve the environment by increasing the amount of factual information presented to viewers.
