This spring Storm invites you to Movie for Change – five evenings to watch, discuss and reflect upon the subject of positive change!
The last Thursday of every month, between 17-20, we welcome you to a movie night about sustainable development. With specially invited guests we will thereafter address and discuss problems and opportunities for sustainable development connected to the theme of the movies.
The events are co-produced with the Department of Urban Studies, the Leadership for Sustainability master’s programme and Fenix Miljöförening.
23/5 – Cowspiracy
Animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of deforestation, water consumption, pollution, and it is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the whole transportation industry. It’s a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.
Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.
31/1 – The True Cost
On the theme of Sustainable Development Goal number 12 – Responsible consumption and production, we will kick the semester off with the documentary The True Cost. A film about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world.
28/2 – Chasing Coral
On the theme of Sustainable Development Goal, number 14 – Life below water, February’s film is Chasing Coral. The world’s oceans – their temperature, chemistry, currents, and life – drive global systems that make the Earth habitable for humankind. But coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate.
28/3 – Tomorrow
During Drivhuset Days of Entrepreneurship, Movie for Change takes on Goal, number 9: Industries, innovation, and infrastructure with the film Tomorrow. The filmmakers set out on a journey to meet the pioneers who are re-inventing agriculture, energy, economy, democracy, and education. Joining those concrete and positive actions which are already working, they began to figure out what could be tomorrow’s world…
25/4 – 17:00-20.00 The Human Scale
On the theme of Sustainable Development Goal number 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities we’re showing The Human Scale. Today 50% of the world’s population lives in urban areas and by 2050 this will have increased to 80%. At the same time, we face peak oil, climate change, loneliness, and severe health issues due to our way of life. But do we have to?
The Human Scale questions our assumptions about modernity, exploring what happens when we put people into the center of our equations. The Danish architect and professor Jan Gehl has studied human behavior in cities over 40 years. He has documented how modern cities repel human interaction and argues that we can build cities in a way, which takes human needs for inclusion and intimacy into account.
