Featured Media of the Week: Climate of Change

What it is:

Our featured media of the week is Brian Hill’s documentary, Climate of Change. This film, narrated by Tilda Swinton, highlights the stories of grassroots activists around the world acting locally to save Earth’s environment.

Why we like it:

 This inspiring documentary shows the many ways that determined people across the world are trying to combat a problem that sometimes can feel too big to even approach. One reviewer says, “This is the most beautiful documentary about the climate-energy crisis. For an issue that many people feel powerless to help solve, this documentary shows how individuals can make a difference and truly reverse this unsustainable course humanity is on.”
