The People’s Climate March has a movie.

Here’s the brand-new trailer for Disruption, which we’re hoping will help galvanize a new wave of climate activists and leaders this fall:

Click here to watch the trailer.

Disruption weaves together political intrigue, mind-blowing science, and an insider’s view of the largest climate mobilization in history. It features some folks you might find familiar (like Bill McKibben and Naomi Klein), and brings some fresh faces and exciting new stories to the fore.

Movies are one of the most powerful forms of communication, and we hope this one will be a powerful tool. On Sunday, September 7th, people everywhere are going to be hosting screenings and watch-parties of Disruption to help build energy and excitement for the big march on September 21st. Will you join in?

Yes, I can host a screening in my community.

I can’t host a screening, but I’ll donate to support the effort.

Hosting a screening is easy: all you need is a way to show a streaming video from the internet (like a YouTube video) to your audience. Our crew will be on hand to support you every step of the way — all you need to do is register your event, spread the word a bit, and block out a few hours. Some people will gather in living rooms, some in libraries, some on campuses — and some people will even book out their local movie theaters. And the timing couldn’t be better: with just a few weeks left before the People’s Climate March in New York, this movie could help us really go big.

Thank you for all your help.

The Center of New Hampshire at the Radisson Hotel, Manchester, NH

Antioch University New England and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Regions 1 and 2 are hosting a regional conference for local planners, decision-makers and educators to understand how to create healthy resilient communities that are better prepared to handle severe weather and climate impacts.

Days 1 & 2

The first two days of the conference are about Building Resilient Communities. The program will inform community planners, decision makers and those responsible for implementing change at the local level how best to identify current and future vulnerabilities, followed by adaptive responses to build resilient communities.

Day 3

The third day, the Educators Summit, will inform middle and high school teachers how to design community-based, problem-solving curriculum that will teach students how best to support municipal officials preparing for impacts from a changing climate.

Both days, in targeting these two different audiences, will focus upon how to:

  • Conduct vulnerability assessments
  • Protect natural and societal mechanisms that maintain resilience
  • Frame and create plans that allow a community to adapt
  • Build community support to implement adaptive responses
  • Effectively use the government in responding to climate change
  • Network with schools, community planners and regional leaders working toward solving similar problems

Each portion includes exhibits, workshops, presentations, and keynote speakers. Attendees may register for any combination of eventsStay connected with us to learn about conference updates and updated details on this website.
