Resilience Film Screenings in LIC: Do the Math, 350.org - Mon. Sept. 16

Neighborhood Resilience Film Screenings
Mondays September 16, 23 and 30, 7 - 9 PM
Coffeed, 37-18 Northern Blvd., LIC, NY 11101
Resilience NYC Meetup - http://www.meetup.com/resiliencenyc/

No charge to attend.

This fall, we are bringing neighbors and civic leaders together at Coffeed in LIC on September 16, 23 and 30 at 7 PM to explore where sustainability and resilience responses overlap, and how to respond as individuals.  Free video screenings will be followed by facilitated group discussion. 

Coffeed is a locally sourced eco-cafe at the 36th Street stop on the M & R trains in Queens, just a few minutes from midtown Manhattan, downstairs from the Brooklyn Grange rooftop farm. Coffeed is generously providing free coffee and home-baked pastries for the Resilience Film Screenings! http://www.coffeednyc.com/

Do The Math, September 16

Climate scientists have measured the carbon in fossil fuel supplies still to be burned and the consequences if it is all used.  This film features the movement to change the terrifying math of the climate crisis, and promote a global power shift to clean energy. (42 minutes) www.350.org/math

The Crash Course, September 23

Our economy, energy systems and environment are interdependent and will face increasing challenges as we meet limits of finite natural resources.  Presented in a clear and factual way.  (45 minutes) http://www.peakprosperity.com/page/crash-course-one-year-anniversary

Crisis of Civilization, September 30

This dark comedy documentary connects the dots between global crises. It combines archival film clips and animations with detailed analysis and specific positive options to transform systems. Watch it free online. (80 minutes) http://crisisofcivilization.com

Following each documentary, we'll ask listeners how the issues raised affect their neighborhood, and what can be done to make it greener and more resilient?  We'll refer listeners to existing programs & resources, as well as local civic groups, to help them take next steps along with their neighbors. 

Recommended programs will include Red Cross and NYC Office of Emergency Management, to build resilience to disruptions. Many NYC initiatives promote building energy conservation upgrades, and solar power, which save money and lower carbon emissions. Local agriculture projects, of course, are good for both the climate and the economy. 

Contact us to bring the Neighborhood Resilience Film Screenings to your neighborhood.

    As a LIC resident and teacher, I look forward to these films. I want my students to be more civic minded. Hopefully, that will help them be better critical thinkers and decision makers.

      Hi Margo, thanks for your note and great to hear from you! Can you invite your students? Or share this info with your friends and neighbors? I would especially like to bring this to LIC people, having worked at LIC Partnership for a very very long time. I will be putting the info out to western Queens press shortly. If you want your own copy of the text to send out, email me at [masked]. - thanks and welcome! - Dan
