The YouTube video “Me and My Bike” has won the film competition “1 Minute To Save The World,” a global contest that asked young contestants (25 and under) to create short films about climate change. The caveat, of course, is that the videos could only be one-minute long.

A group of teenagers from Nairobi rose to the challenge, creating an inspirational hip-hop video (below) about how riding their bikes is not only good for them, but also good for the environment—helping reduce carbon-dioxide emissions. It shows them biking around town, along traffic, rapping happily while saving the world one bike at a time. The teens are part of a hip-hop group called Wafalme that spreads important messages through their videos.

A host of judges—including Frank Oz, Bruce Parry, and Kenny Young—helped narrow down the young winners from Kenya—who received $8000; the Best Film award, sponsored by Passion Pictures; and the Youth Visions award, sponsored by Artist Project Earth.
