Dallas Interfaith Power & Light presents the Dallas Premiere of The Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism & Community.
The 56-minute film accepts the consensus of scientists that climate change has already arrived, and asks—what is keeping us from action? In discussions with thought leaders and activists, The Wisdom to Survive explores how unlimited growth lies behind climate disruption and is devastating our planet’s life support system, our social fabric and the lives of billions of people.
The film features Bill McKibben (350.org), Buddhist author Joanna Macy, whale scientist Roger Payne, Herschelle Milford (Surplus People Project), Quincy Saul (Ecosocialist Horizons) and more. They provide insights, answers and hope. What becomes clear is, we already have the tools we need to change our economy and lifestyle. Our attention must focus on taking action and building community.
Discussion follows with co-director John Ankele, Texas Audubon conservation biologist Dr. Tania Homayoun and Yaira Robinson of Texas Interfaith Power & Light. Anna Clark of EarthPeople will moderate. A reception follows.
