2040 Movie Fundraiser & Community Discussion
Sep 24 – Oct 1 all day
2040 Movie Fundraiser & Community Discussion

Join us to watch an inspiring movie about climate solutions existing around the world

Climate change is not just a crisis for people and our planet, it’s also our greatest opportunity to change the way our society works to be fairer, cleaner, safer and just… better! This movie captures a glimpse into a wonderful and healthy future here on Planet Earth. It is the perfect movie to watch as a family, to inspire your kids to go out and change the world and learn about solutions that can keep our planet healthy and thriving.

Donate $6+ and receive the link to watch this movie from September 24th-October 1st.

Purchase a ticket to the event for $6 or more which is a donation to the EcoSociety. On September 24th, we’ll email you the link to watch 2040 at home in your own time by October 1st.

This event is in collaboration with Citizen’s Climate Lobby volunteers and EcoSociety volunteers.

On the evening of October 1st, join us for a virtual community discussion about the movie. Everyone who donates to watch the movie is invited.

After watching the film, participants will have an opportunity to actively explore what their own 2040 may look like through a creative, land-based activity led by Sarah West, environmental arts therapist.  Participants are welcome to bring their explorations and creations to the community discussion forum on October 1st.

All donations will go towards investing in a future in renewable energy here in the West Kootenays and developing a playbook which will outline how other communities around the world can get their leaders to commit to transitioning to 100% renewable energy.
