Climate Film: London Premiere @ Wanstead Library on March 6th


Wanstead & Woodford Friends of the Earth partner with Transition Redbridge on March 6th to host the free Climate Week London ‘premiere’ of 2014 Swiss climate documentary Thule Tuvalu. The film tells the story of 2 remote communities, one in the Arctic circle, the other an island nation in the south Pacific, through the voices of local inhabitants. These people are already suffering the impacts of glacier melt and sea level rise. While the rest of us go about our daily lives without paying too much attention to glacier melt or sea level rise, the inhabitants of these places are already – and palpably – suffering the impacts of global climate change. From 6pm, vegan and veggie refreshments and an Introduction to Transition Redbridge. Guest speaker is Duncan Law, from Transition Town Brixton. The film starts at 7pm, followed by a moderated discussion focusing on the active development of Transition Redbridge. Contributions from Transition Leytonstoners would be greatly valued!

Venue: Wanstead Library, Spratt Hall Road, E11 2RQ

Date and time: Friday March 6th, 6pm (Film starts at 7pm)
