Join us for the inaugural "Village Surrey Movie Night" - a place to talk about community change and resiliency. Room 418, Surrey City Centre Library. The event is free and open to the general public.
This month we will be screening "The 11th Hour," a movie produced and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio. The movie will be followed by time for socializing and sharing ideas.
“With contributions from over 50 politicians, scientists, and environmental activists, including former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, physicist Stephen Hawking, Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai, and journalist Paul Hawken, the film documents the grave problems facing the planet's life systems. Global warming, deforestation, mass species extinction, and depletion of the oceans' habitats are all addressed. The film's premise is that the future of humanity is in jeopardy.
The film proposes potential solutions to these problems by calling for restorative action by the reshaping and rethinking of global human activity through technology, social responsibility and conservation.”
