Naomi Klein’s book – This Changes Everything – was published in September 2014. The book tackles the issues at the heart of Climate Change and analyses the root causes of the crisis. It is a demanding, thought-provoking read which rapidly became an international bestseller. For more info on the book see ‘This Changes Everything’ | Sustainable in Holdfast Bay
This month sees the release of a film inspired by the book and directed by Avi Lewis. Filmed over 211 days in nine countries and five continents over four years, it brings us up to date with the challenges posed by climate change and what we can do about it. If you have not read the book yet, this is a good opportunity to hear its message.
From depicting communities mobilising to create change to making the connection between the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there, the film reminds us of of the key question originally posed in the book: “Can we seize the crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better?”
Conservation Council SA is aiming to screen the film in Adelaide on the 2nd of November 2015. Ticket can be booked at: https://www.tugg.com/events/69380 .
