OGS Ambassador Program

Ontario Green Screen is looking for ambassadors to champion change in film and television production. Join OGS as an Ambassador to raise awareness of sustainable production. In order to become an OGS Ambassador you need to take an OGS training course, attend community meetings, and be passionate about helping to make changes in the way that we work.

Here are 3 things that you can do right now to help green our industry and become an Ontario Green Screen Ambassador.

1. Learn: Take the free OGS Climate and Sustainable Production training or the Carbon Calculator training module. Attend at least 2 community meetings annually.

2. Act: Take action to change workplaces and help the environment. Green actions can be big and small. Whether large institutional change, like recycling building materials, using a hybrid fleet of vehicles, or making individual change like eating lunch with reusable cutlery or carpooling or cycling to work. We want to celebrate your accomplishments as OGS ambassadors.

3. Share: Share your green actions with Ontario Green Screen by reporting successes (big and small) story by email, or snap a photo/video sustainability actions and share on social media at #OntarioGreenScreen to challenge others to take their own actions and pass it along!

OGS Ambassadors are invited to quarterly Zoom meet-ups where you can connect with other ambassadors, share stories and build community. Ambassadors also receive a digital badge to promote their ambassadorship on social media and other networking channels.
