Join us for a special screening of Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis' movie This Changes Everything next week in New York City. The event will include a guest panel of local climate/environmental justice activists, raffles and giveaways. All proceeds will go to local NYC climate initiatives.
There's no denying the fact that climate change is humanity's greatest global challenge. If we continue on our current course of extracting and burning fossil fuels, the consequences to our planet range from rising temperatures, to surging seas to more extinctions and even an increase in refugees and loss of human life.
Later this month more than 80 world leader will converge on Paris for the global COP21 Climate Summit; the aim is to create a binding global agreement to address climate disruption. A global coalition of climate justice activists will meet them in the streets. Lead by frontline communities, indigenous leaders and other global citizens, we'll be there to show that this our fight and we demand results.
The road to Paris is already being paved by local communities around the world, and most definitely right here in New York City. Naomi Klein's game changing book "This Changes Everything" discusses the important role local action plays in resisting climate change. And now that her book has been adapted into a movie, we are holding a special screening of it with our friends at Patagonia, Sane Energy Project and Sierra Club. Click here to reserve your spot for this very special event.
Join us next week and the host organizations, along with distinguished local climate champions will hold a short panel discussion before the movie on local efforts to resist climate change and the work ahead of us leading up to and following the Paris climate talks. All are welcome, and we're encouraging you to make a $15.00 donation to help fund local climate initiatives in New York City. Our friends at Patagonia will also raffle off some of their gear to support these local campaigns, including Environmental Action!
