Monthly Climate Cafe – June (online)
Wednesday 3rd June: 6:00pm to 8:30pm
Be part of tackling climate change – join us for monthly films, guest speakers and discussions.
This month we will be hosting an online event: a film showing of the 2018 film The Green Lie, followed by an online discussion.
Environmentally-friendly electric cars, sustainably-produced food products, fair production processes… Can our purchasing power help save the world?
In this tongue-in-cheek two-hander, Austrian director Werner Boote and German author Kathrin Hartmann meticulously unpick some of the most prevalent ‘greenwashing’ myths at play today. They take viewers on a round-the-globe tour of corporate hypocrisy, to the sites of catastrophic environmental disasters and shocking land rights violations – all of which are harming humans, animals and the planet despite the glowing promises of effective self-regulation.
Far from disempowering, however, this exposé of our limited choice as ethical consumers reminds us that our power as individuals does not lie in our wallets, but in our actions and behaviours as voters, citizens and members of our communities.
The film showing and discussion is free but booking is required as places are limited.
We’ll send out a joining link to attendees to allow them to join on the day.
If you have any problems booking, or any questions, please phone 01592 858458 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
