Film Screening: Climate Change and the Human Prospect

Film Screening: Climate Change and the Human Prospect

A documentary film by Centre for Local Prosperity

Thursday, 8 November 2018

6:30pm

McConnell Library

We know there are no more chances. It is not going away and today is the time to get it right in dealing with the climate crisis. Our world will live with it for the rest of our history, just as we have lived with the twentieth century legacy of our nuclear war. Our shared duty now, as one people, is to protect and repair our Earth, even as we prepare ourselves for its future unknown.

The film Climate Change and the Human Prospect documents the vision created at the Climate Change and the Human Prospect: A Thinkers Retreat held at the Thinkers Lodge in Pugwash, Nova Scotia.

In the compelling setting of the Thinkers Lodge where scientists and scholars from all over the world have stayed and tackled the world's most pressing issues through the power of dialogue, Climate Change and the Human Prospect captures the thoughts, emotions and ideas of these Thinkers - scientists, economists, municipal councillors, planners, artists, community activists, First Nations and Eastern wisdom representatives and others - as they articulate global warming's cascading impact on small, rural and coastal communities and focus on actionable, locally-oriented and forward-motion climate change plans.
