As part of the FA Community Series, Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC) and FA are collaborating to bring awareness to climate change by offering a screening of An Inconvenient Sequel: Speaking Truth to Power on Thursday, November 30th at 6 PM. The film features former Vice President Al Gore as he travels around the world to inform and inspire citizens into activism to influence international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes as he pursues the inspirational idea that the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.
A climate change expert panel will convene immediately following the film for a brief Q and A. Panelists are WHRC President and Executive Director Philip B. Duffy, Ph.D., WHRC Deputy Director and Senior Scientist Robert Max Homes, Ph.D., and WGBH Science Editor Heather Goldstone, Ph.D.
WHRC wanted to do more and work directly with youth on issues of climate change and approached FA because of its commitment to sustainability and global stewardship (learn more).
Together FA and WHRC decided to host an additional screening for students and faculty and a follow-up classroom experience. On Friday, December 1st Dr. Max Holmes will debrief the film and discuss climate change with students in all the science classes. Faculty are invited to sit in.
If you'd like to learn more, there is a climate education resource kit that accompanies the screening material.
