I am always keen on addressing the current climate situation and wish I could devote my effort and energy to it. This feeling has grown much stronger in the past few years,' says Kevin Tang. Although my personal influence is small, I want to support the use of media as a conduit and platform to inspire more people to take part in creating greener and fairer society.'

Kevin will announce the winner of Transforming Society during the awards ceremony at The May Fair hotel on Monday 18 November, one of six competitive categories that will be awarded on the night.

The Award recognises films from companies and institutions that are transforming society as part of day to day business in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Promoting inclusivity, improving access to education and tackling inequality are just some of the ways organisations can transform society. Find the shortlisted films here.
