This Changes Everything, March 2nd. College of the Rockies

What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world? 'This Changes Everything' is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.
Wildsight Kimberley/Cranbrook will present the film on Tuesday March 1st, 7:30pm at Centre 64 in Kimberley and on Wednesday March 2nd ,7:30pm in the College of the Rockies Lecture Theatre in Cranbrook.

 Along with the film, Wildsight’s Lars Sander-Green will give a short presentation on our national – and local – carbon emissions and what we can do to reduce them to sustainable levels before it’s too late. Admission is by donation.
“Climate change is such a complex subject and we all hear so many huge numbers that are hard to make sense of,” said Sander-Green, “so I’ve put together this presentation to break down our carbon emissions into simple terms - where we are now, what’s sustainable, and how we can reduce our emissions to sustainable levels before it’s too late.”

'This Changes Everything', filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller 'This Changes Everything', the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond.

Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.
