Local Screening of Sundance Premier Film

Don't miss out on the one time screening of “Climate Refugees,” a very powerful film about the human face of climate change. The US Green Building Council North Florida Chapter is excited to announce the upcoming screening of this Sundance premiere film.

“Climate Refugees” will be the first of six films in our 2011 Green Carpet Film Series, one of our many efforts as a local 501(c)3 non-profit to foster genuine dialogue, increase awareness and education of sustainability issues, and empower action towards a more sustainable region. "Climate Refugees" premiered at Sundance and featured in the Copenhagen summit in 2010 and is an important and timely documentary film that uncovers the unbelievable plight of people around the world displaced by climatically-induced environmental disasters. The film illuminates – for the first time – the human face of climate change as civilization now finds itself facing the confluence of overpopulation, lack of resources, and a changing climate.
