Film Screening: Climate Change in Atlantic Canada

  • Sat, September 20, 2014
  • 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • The Pearl Theatre in Lunenburg
Across Atlantic Canada, coastlines and communities are already being adversely affected by climate change due to increasing storm intensity, surging sea levels, coastal erosion and flooding. Preparations are now being made for the super storms of the future, but this will not be easy, as ocean levels are expected to increase over one meter globally by the year 2100 due to melting Polar Regions and warmer waters undergoing “thermal expansion”. This film, shot across Atlantic Canada, represents a consultation with over 100 stakeholders, and documents their real world experiences and efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Despite being on the frontlines, Atlantic Canadians show that solutions to this pressing global issue are within our grasp, provided we decide to act.


The filmmaker Ian Mauro will participate in a Question & Answer period following the screening of CLIMATE CHANGE IN ATLANTIC CANADA. A great opportunity to learn more.
