Climate awareness films at Shoreline City Hall start Thursday

Wednesday, April 3, 2019


As part of April's Climate Awareness Week and Earth Day activities, the Bahá'ís of Shoreline are hosting climate awareness films again this year at Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N. All events will take place in Room 303 from 7pm to 9pm on the following dates:

Thursday, April 4: “Racing Extinction” is a sobering look at humanity’s role in causing extinction of marine and other life, and the implications for its own extinction. Note: Due to some gory scenes, this film is not for the faint of heart. Parental caution advised. (90 minutes)

Tuesday, April 9: “Love Thy Nature” continues on the theme of extinction, but is a cinematic immersion into the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world that explores how nature nourishes us. The mind-set that humanity is somehow separate from nature has caused the disruption of billions of years of evolution, with mass extinction of species that threatens the survival of the human race. Love Thy Nature shows how a new era of connectedness with the natural world is key to ensuring our species' future. (76 minutes)

Thursday, April 18: “Tales of Arctic Travels” – In addition to the two films, Shoreline’s own “Climatey Jane”, Deborah Todd, will share stories and pictures of her travels through the Arctic last summer (2018), visiting Iceland, Greenland, and Nunavut in a failed attempt to transit the Northwest Passage. During that time, she was able to meet and talk with people living in villages in the Arctic, and hear their stories of how climate change has been impacting their lives in very real ways in just the past 10-15 years.
