On Saturday, September 27, during the weekend after the New York Climate Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit and the People's Climate March, PASMC will dovetail those events with a free showing of the new documentary film, "The Wisdom to Survive".
Subtitled "Climate Change, Capitalism and Community", this 56-minute film explores the threat of climate change and the realities of the world environment, as well as the hope and possibility for people around the world to bring about change.
"The Wisdom to Survive" accepts the consensus of scientists that climate change has already arrived, and asks: what is keeping us from action? The film explores how unlimited growth and greed are destroying the life support system of the planet, the social fabric of society, and the lives of billions of people.
The film features thought leaders and activists in the realms of science, economics and spirituality discussing how we can evolve and take action in the face of climate disruption. They urge us to open ourselves to the beauty that surrounds us and get to work on ensuring it thrives. We hear from the likes of Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, Nikki Cooley, Roger Payne, Richard Heinberg, Amy Seidl, Stephanie Kaza, Gus Speth, Jihan Gearan, and Ben Falk.
Come to the Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo, 300 E. Santa Inez Avenue (at Ellsworth), at 7 PM. We will begin the screening shortly after that, and have open comments following the film.
Refreshments will be on hand; the UUSM is wheelchair accessible.
