May Act for the Earth Events
Act for the Earth Film Discussion: A Life on Our Planet
Friday, May 14 • 7:00-8:30 p.m.
Filled with the remarkable film footage we have come to expect from David Attenborough, this is his powerful “witness statement”, and his prescription for setting things right. How do we move from being apart from nature, to becoming allied with it? Film is available for viewing on Netflix.
Wellspring Wednesday • Extinction: Our Role, Our Responsibility
Wednesday, May 19 • 7:00-8:30 p.m.
Join us as we explore connections between the catastrophic mass extinction event now underway and human population. We approach this sensitive but important subject with compassion and attention to justice. Can trends be reversed?
Members of the Act for the Earth Team were asked to reflect on how and why they began to work for sustainability and environmental justice, and each person taped a short video of their story. We showed the compiled video as a Wellspring Wednesday presentation on Earth Day, April 22, 2020. We hope you enjoy watching it! CLICK HERE to watch the Earth Day video.
The Act for the Earth Team hopes their stories will spark your own thoughts. They would love to hear how you are coping with challenges of sustainability in this age of social distancing amid COVID-19. Do you have an environmental passion or concern, and what are you doing about it? Contact the team at email@example.com.
