2nd Wednesday Lecture: Before the Flood Film + Panel Discussion
November 8 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
In collaboration with the Illinois Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance is partnering to screen the National Geographic documentary of Before the Flood with a post-film panel discussion about steps we can each take to minimize climate change.
Every person has a unique ability to provide environmental solutions to combat climate change. Join us as we explore the existing climate crisis, as well as the impact individuals and groups can make on our environment. Our panel speakers will discuss the role of the public in helping to slow climate change as we view Before the Flood; a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change. The film will guide us through climate issues, as well as actions society can take to minimize the disruption of life on our planet. In the words of Leonardo DiCaprio, Before the Flood “shows how interconnected the fate of all humanity is — but also the power we all possess as individuals to build a better future for our planet.”
Please note: doors open at 5:30pm with introductions starting at 5:45pm.
