Climate Week Film Screening
United Parish's GreenUP Ministry Team and Climate Action Brookline have once again teamed up to present a movie night featuring the film Tidewater. All are invited on Friday, April 13 from 7-8:30pm in Willett Hall for the film and a discussion with Rebecca Herst, Director of Sustainable Solutions Lab at UMass Boston.
About the evening's program: The Hampton Roads area of Virginia is vulnerable to sea level rise, just like greater Boston. The region experiences regular instances of “sunny day flooding” putting homes, hospitals, roads and the electric grid at risk of permanent flooding. The film demonstrates that a community wide problem solving approach involving citizens, local businesses and governments is the only way to ensure the continued prosperity of a region. Because the area is home to the highest concentration of naval bases in the country, nothing less than the strength of our national security is at stake. In follow-up discussion, hear about how Boston is planning to deal with its own sea level rise.
