Sense and Sustainability
Wed 31 May 2017, 19:30 – 21:30 BST
On Wednesday 31st May 2017 at 7.30pm, there will be a public screening in Kendal of the film “Sense and Sustainability” and you are invited to attend.
A three minute trailer is available at: http://www.sense-sustainability.com/
In the 60 minute documentary film Sense and Sustainability the question is asked, “Is a species set on endless growth sustainable?” In answering this question the film explores the scale of human endeavor and its impact on the environment. The answer becomes clear as the film discusses population growth and overconsumption, and considers the water and other resource scarcity that we are already facing today. The film begins to examine what it truly takes to be sustainable, and explains the dangers of the common misconception that technology will save us. It then explains the importance of the education and empowerment of women and rights to contraceptives and international family planning, and how this relates to a sustainable society.
The writers and directors of the film, Michael and Amanda Connolly, will be present to answer questions and discuss the film after the screening.
Entry is free, although donations towards the cost of hire of the room will be welcome. If you would like to come along, please RSVP.
