Our local green action group is holding an informal plant & seed swap at the King Alfred at 7pm on Tuesday 12 March. Plants seeds and seedlings will be exchanged for free, but you don’t have to have any to join in, it’s also a social event with “green drinks”. More details here, and on the CAA Facebook page.

 

Then on Thursday 26 March, they will be showing 2040, join the Regeneration in the Williams Hall , Stoke St Gregory at 7:30.

Following its world premiere at Berlinale ‘19, Damon Gameau brings 2040, his visionary film which offers new hope to the climate crisis conversation, to UK audiences. We are proud to partner with Together Films to bring 2040 to our area to encourage individuals to join the regeneration of the planet.

Motivated by his 4-year-old daughter and concern for the planet she will inherit, Damon Gameau, Australian award-winning director (That Sugar Film, 2015) and actor, embarks on a global journey to meet innovators and changemakers to discover what the future of the planet could look like by the year 2040 if we embraced the best solutions already available to us, and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream.

Guided by the voices of 100 child interviewees aged between 6 and 11 who describe the kind of world they would like to see by the year 2040, Damon draws on the best minds from around the world to focus on climate, economics, technology, civil society, education, agriculture and sustainability to conjure a positive portrait of what ‘could be’ instead of the current dystopian future we are so often presented.

We will follow the film with a time of general discussion where we can share our thoughts on the film and consider what we might all do as individuals and groups to combat climate change and the general degradation of the planet’s eco-systems. By working together, we can make a difference locally and globally.

More details here, and on the FB page, and a trailer can be seen here. Contact CAA at climateactionathelney@gmail.com or on 01823 490623
