‘Disruption’ climate change film airs Friday

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Comox United Church and the Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship will present the climate change film Disruption on Friday, October 17, at 7 p.m.

This dramatic film was released only one month ago, in preparation for the Climate Change march held in New York on Sept. 21, where more than 300,000 people marched through downtown New York in advance of the Climate Change Summit held at the UN.

The film has three major themes: a review of climate change science, a history of how major protest marches have changed our world, and the story of the groups organizing the Sept. 21 march. On Sept. 23, more than 100 heads of state and government met at the UN to discuss climate change, and to generate political momentum leading up to a meaningful climate change agreement in Paris in 2015.

 

The presentation will be at at Comox United Church, 250 Beach Drive in Comox. There will be a group discussion after the film for those who wish to stay and discuss the film’s themes. Admission is by donation.
