Christine (keepacoolworld) will share about maintaining hope in the face of such a complex issue. The film, ‘Changing the Tide’ is a Back-to-the-future style film set in Wellington: A collaboration between Keepacoolworld and ‘Film for Change’, it was nominated for two different environmental film awards in New Zealand and Australia
Be inspired: Come and hear Bill McKibbon on using local power to effect change. He worked with New York City to divest US$5billion from fossil fuel projects. The City also sued 5 major oil companies over their contribution to climate change. Recent news revealed ‘Shell’ knew of the climate effects fossil fuels were to cause 3 decades ago. New York city, like much of NZ are threatened by rising seas, but the chance to limit the effects is NOW. Lets pull together.
Protest face to face at Parliament 6 June with US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson. This Tuesday 6 June, Rex is landing in Wellington to meet with our Government.
Rex Tillerson is no warm-hearted man. Before he took the role of Secretary of State to do Trump’s bidding, he was the CEO of ExxonMobil — the company that despite knowing the truth about climate change since the 1960s waged a war of misinformation and denial that robbed humanity of a generation’s worth of time to reverse climate change.
With Donald Trump’s declaring he will withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Agreement, join hundreds of others to protest that this is a crime against our global future.
Where: outside Parliament on Tuesday 6 June.
When: We don’t know yet what time Tillerson is to be arriving in Wellington.
