Date: Sunday 29th November
Time: 10.15 for 10.30 start
Place: Lion Health, Bradley Road, Stourbridge via Murray’s

Update

Firstly, many thanks to those who came to the last event. Nine trolleys were extracted along with all the other usual plastic muckage and some tyres. We were around 11 people. Murray’s are happy to let us in through their gate for easier access and for the next event there are some real horrors to remove. There are many tyres, a massive red bin and all the other things that appear once one gets started on removal – with the help of the brilliant winch.

More

This-Changes-Everything_Final-692x1024Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.

The film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond.

Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.
