Penobscot Bay Film Series, Maine


Sierra Club Maine presents The Wisdom to Survive

Monday, November 23, 6pm
Belfast Free Library, Abbott Room, Belfast, Maine
Post-film discussion with Amy Browne, News & Public Affairs Manager of WERU-FM

The documentary film, 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 the society, and the lives of billions of people.

Will we have the wisdom to survive? 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. Among those featured are Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, Roger Payne, Richard Heinberg, Gus Speth, Stephanie Kaza, Nikki Cooley and Ben Falk.

Post-film discussion will be led by Amy Browne, News & Public Affairs Manager of WERU-FM, who is at the forefront of day to day news about Penobscot Bay and its connectivity with the rest of the world.
