Join Mass Audubon, MCAN, and Young Voices for the Planet for an evening of inspiring short films about kids taking action on climate change and the environment!
What: Screenings of four short films about youth taking action in their communities
When: 7:00-8:30pm, May 8th
Where: Mass Audubon Boston Nature Center 500 Walk Hill St, Mattapan, Massachusetts 02126
The mission of the Young Voices for the Planet film series is to to limit the magnitude of climate change and its impacts by empowering children and youth, through uplifting and inspiring success stories, to take an essential role in informing their communities — and society at large, challenging decision-makers, and catalyzing change.
The short films document youth speaking out, creating solutions and leading the change. These youth solutions to the climate crisis include stories of California kids banning plastic bags, Florida students saving their school $53,000 in energy costs, an 11-year-old German boy planting millions of trees and other young people changing laws, changing minds and changing society as they reduce the carbon footprint of their homes, schools and communities.
We will show 4 of the short films and follow the films with a conversation with the stars from "Save Tomorrow", who changed the town bylaws in Lexington MA to allow for solar on public buildings. Dessert will be served.
