Food for Thought Film Series
FREE screening Wednesday, February 15 doors open at 6:30pm with the film starting at 7pm at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, 508 S. Main, Moscow, ID.
A big thank you to our co-sponsor for the Food for Thought Film Series, the University of Idaho Sustainability Center! Join us for a FREE community screening of Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism, & Community on Wednesday, February 15 at 7pm.
Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism, & Community is a great kick-off to the 2017 Food for Thought Film Series as it features thought leaders and activists in the realms of science, economics, and spirituality discussing how we can evolve and take action in the face of climate disruption. They urge us to open ourselves to the beauty that surrounds us and offer us solutions and ideas to get to work on ensuring it thrives. One key message throughout the film is that working together, as a global community, we CAN survive. Amongst those featured are Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, Roger Payne, Richard Heinberg, Gus Speth, Stephanie Kaza, Nikki Cooley and Ben Falk.
"The Wisdom to Survive is an exquisitely filmed documentary that presents an overview of the climate crisis, including its causes, effects, and directions of hope. Poignant scenes illustrate the sacred beauty of the natural world, the tragedy of its diminishment, and our human interconnectedness with the rest of creation. Indigenous leaders, people from impoverished and vulnerable nations, scientists, scholars, religious leaders, activists, farmers, and poets make the case for 'climate justice' and point in the direction of hope. Do we have the wisdom to survive? The answer is related to community. We are connected by our shared grief at what is happening to the earth and by our shared hope and commitment to the future." - Sharon Delgado, co-founder and Executive Director of Earth Justice Ministries
