This video has kindly been released with the approval of the BoeBoe community. It shows some of the process and learning through the participatory 3D modeling activity carried out in BoeBoe village, Solomon Islands. It shows how the community came together and how the model acted as a focus, a catalyst for discussion on possible climate change issues. It shows how the tool allowed all members of the community to interact and contribute to a living picture of their lands and resources. It also highlights how the tool allowed external data, science and information to be assimilated into local perception, knowledge and understanding of the landscape.

Thanks to all who participated in the event, and in the film, especially to chief David for allowing the video to be made and shared publicly.
