North Island College nursing students present An Inconvenient Sequel

Join a coalition of globally-minded North Island College nursing students, Wednesday, Jan. 17, for the screening Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.

The presentation will feature an introduction and post-film discussion led by the Comox Valley’s own Will Cole Hamilton, one of 35 Canadians who trained under Al Gore last summer and are committed to implementing climate change solutions.

Admission is by donation to NIC’s Global Learning Initiative, a student-driven project which fosters awareness of global issues through partnerships with local communities and individuals. It has supported nursing students’ experiences in remote communities in Uganda, Nepal and Mozambique and it continues to strengthen cultural understandings through field schools to Aboriginal and global communities.

Fair trade coffee and chocolate will be available for purchase before and after the film, with proceeds helping fund NIC nursing students conducting field studies.

The film starts at 6:30 p.m. at NIC’s Stan Hagen Theatre at the Comox Valley campus, with the doors opening at 6 p.m.

For more information, contact Lynne Oberik at 250-334-5061 or email lynne.oberik@nic.bc.ca.
