Films for Change presents – ONCE YOU KNOW
January 14 @ 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Film screening followed by a Resilience Workshop led by Lesley Morrison
ONCE YOU KNOW asks the disturbing questions: Are there better ways of collapsing than others? What is meaningful work on the way down? Director Emmanuel Cappellin is concerned with how to best respond personally and collectively.
His quest leads him around the world to meet five of the world’s leading climate scientists and energy experts. They share with him the truth, chaos, and hope in their work. They allow him to challenge everything he took for granted – from growth-based democracies to personal freedoms.
This odyssey brings him back to himself and to Saillans, his small mountain village. In this life-size, open sky laboratory, everything becomes once again possible: having a child, redefining questions of social justice, implementing participatory democracy, starting an energy transition…The first steps, perhaps, towards some kind of collective resilience.
Maintaining Wellbeing and Resilience in the Climate Emergency
with Lesley Morrison
4.30 – 6pm
It can be hard to maintain wellbeing in the face of the climate emergency. But it is essential that we look after ourselves and stay connected with our feelings in order to fully contribute. Lesley will facilitate a workshop based on Joanna Macy’s Work That Reconnects where she will encourage us, in a safe space, to share our responses and look at what resilience means.
Lesley Morrison used to work as a GP and, for many years, has been a climate activist. She believes that health professionals have a responsibility to use their voices in the climate emergency and that we all need to look after ourselves in order to creatively care for others, and for our beautiful earth. She is the author of The Wellbeing Toolkit for Doctors.
