WHAT – Film Night – Naomi Kline’s “This Changes Everything
WHEN – 7.30pm Wednesday 24 February 2016
WHERE – Sandringham Uniting Church Hall, 21 Trentham Steet, Sandringham

Around 50 people attended a Public Forum on Wednesday 24 February to view the film ‘This Changes Everything’, inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller and directed by Avi Lewis.  The film suggests that our ideology of capitalism and viewing the earth as a machine to be mastered is the real cause of climate change.  The film looks at communities taking action on the front lines from the Alberta Tar Sands, the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond to protect their well-being.  It suggests that fossil fuels need to be left in the ground in favour of taking up renewables to prevent further global warming.  We need to build an alternative ideology of respecting mother nature and nurturing the natural resources that we depend on for our own well-being.
