Last Tuesday Transition Movie: The Wisdom to Survive


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 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.

"A powerful witness to the possibility of change as we awaken to the remarkable beauty of our planet." John Grim, Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology

"The Wisdom to Survive is both instructive and inspiring. It combines incisive scientific and social analysis regarding anthropogenic climate change, while raising important existential and ethical questions. At the same time, it shows people working in practical, transformational, and imaginative ways to bring about a fundamentally different and more just and sustainable world, and thus provides very helpful food for thought in terms of where to go from here and now."

Joseph Nevins, Associate Professor of Geography, Chair of Earth Science and Geography, Vassar College

"I hope the film can travel everywhere and impact others' lives as it has ours. I felt in the immensity of the material there was a movement--a narrative line--toward something of great significance. The images of people all over the world 'pushing back' stay with me. We are one family of beings on this planet. Your film shows us that."

Sara Norton, Faculty, Health, Arts and Sciences, Sustainability, Goddard College

"The beauty of this film is that it calls me out of the closet. To shake off whatever cultural baggage there is that inhibits me from admitting to those around me that I care...Wisdom to Survive breathes life into the movement to love, defend, and lend helping hands to the one planet home we have. This film honors the wisdom of youth, scientists, clergy, activists, indigenous peoples, artists and you...If you are haunted by the stupid thought that heroics are needed to save the planet and you think, 'I'm no hero,' then this film will help you forget that nonsense."

Jim Merkel, Author, Radical Simplicity: Small Footprints on a Finite Earth, Director of the Global Living Project
