Vetiver Network International Short Video Competition Winners

Updated: Jan 22, 2023

Late last year, I had the pleasure of sitting on a panel with 4 others to judge video submissions for the Vetiver Network International's Short Video Competition. There were 34 submissions in total, from all around the world. It was a true pleasure, and a great way to see all of the amazing work that is being done with Vetiver Grass, a Climate Smart Technology.


The categories were: Community, disaster mitigation, soil and water conservation, phytoremediation, agriculture, slope stabilization, and "other uses".

Videos were submitted from: Peru, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Kenya, Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia, Myanmar, Guatemala, Ethiopia, Nigeria, China, and Cameroon.

In my mind, vetiver is the best "tool" to address the very real need for fast action to mitigate the damage done by extractive practices in tropical and subtropical regions globally. Vetiver has the potential to change to world, and regenerate abundance in our watersheds and farmlands.

I highly encourage you to take some time to see some of the top videos from the contest, as they are the best way to get a quick understanding of the real world uses and current projects involving these amazing Vetiver Systems.

I've cherrypicked some of the best videos below. You can see the full list here at TVNI's website.
