    Hyland Cinema in London, ON, Canada

    The Human Element Film Screening & Panel

    With the Amazon on fire and Hurricane Dorian ravaging the southern coast, the impact of human activity on our climate has never been clearer – or more alarming.

    Tickets here.

    Please join us for a free community screening of The Human Element, an insightful documentary by environmental photographer James Balog, which captures the lives of everyday people on the front lines of climate change. With rare compassion and heart, The Human Element relays stories from across the United States about the impact of a changing climate on nature’s four basic elements – earth, air, water, and fire – and inspires us to reevaluate our relationship with the natural world.

    After the screening, stay for a dynamic discussion with four of London's environmental leaders:

    • Skylar Franke, Executive Director of London Environmental Network & Green Economy London
    • Genevieve Langille, local youth climate strike organizer
    • Gabor Sass, Professor at Western University Centre for Environment and Sustainability and London Public Library Environmentalist in Residence
    • Representative from City of London Planning Services

    For more information on the film, please visit thehumanelementmovie.com

    This screening and panel discussion are FREE to attend, but space is limited, so please reserve your seat early.

    Hyland Cinema is served by bus routes 7, 11, 12, 26, and 93

    The Hyland offers free parking at the rear of the building.

    Doors open at 6:30 PM.

    Hosted by Peggy Sattler, MPP London West.

    City of London in London, ON, Canada

    Global Climate Strike

    View Facebook Event and Contact information here

    The climate crisis is an emergency. From Sept 20-27, millions of people around the world will be walking out of their homes and workplaces to join youth-led #ClimateStrike actions demanding that leaders respond to this emergency.

    Here in London, our City Council admirably voted in April to declare a Climate Emergency. Now it’s up to us, the people who elected them, to show our councillors how important action on the environment is to us. And to show them how important it is that the City takes real action now - so that declaring a “climate emergency” is not just words, but actually shifts policy, priorities and resources.

    Fighting climate breakdown is about much more than emissions and scientific metrics – it’s about fighting for a just and sustainable world that works for all of us. If we are going to fight for this, we need everyone!

    Come and join us outside City Hall from 3 to 5 pm on Friday September 20th and September 27th. Everyone is welcome - bring your kids! :)

    We will share more details in the coming weeks. Our hope is that other events will spring up during the week of Sept 20-27, too!

    Come join us! Can you help in any of the following ways?
    * Please help us to spread the word on social media (Share share share! Don’t be shy!!!), and stick up posters
    * Would you like to organise your own for the week of Sept 20-27? Please go ahead! And please let us know, too :)
    * Would your organisation or group like to be an official supporter of London Ontario Climate Strike?
    * Can you play music, juggle, dance, bring cupcakes, fruit, anything else?

    Send us a message today! We are looking forward to hearing from you :) This movement will only grow if we each step forward and offer what we have, if we each offer our gifts, whatever they may be. Together we are powerful! Together we can achieve climate justice and a more just world for all.
