Screening: Tomorrow (Demain)
Thursday, April 20 2017, Southover Church, 7pm, £7
Tickets are £7 on the door or at www.wegottickets.com
As part of the Still Moving series of films being screened in Lewes churches, Transition Town Lewes is partnering with The Depot to show this award-winning documentary that's already become a phenomenon across more than 30 countries.
After a special briefing for the journal Nature announced the possible extinction of a part of mankind before the end of the 21st century, filmmakers Mélanie Laurent and Cyril Dion travelled worldwide to figure out what could lead to this disaster and what concrete steps could avoid it.
On their travels, they visit permaculture farms, urban agriculture projects, community-owned renewable projects, creative schools and ambitious recycling projects. Exploring those concrete actions that are already having a positive effect in local communities, Laurent and Dion began to figure out what a different tomorrow could look like…
This is a hugely positive, affirming and inspirational film, exploring creative and radical solutions in food, energy, transport, economics and education - and the perfect antidote to our post-Brexit, post-Trump malaise.

Can we really stop climate change?
Citizens' Climate Lobby members Ed Atkinson and Guy Tanner were speakers at a Skeptics in the Pub evening at Elephant and Castle on March 22nd. In "Can we really stop climate change?" potential policy options were outlined by Ed, who argued that a revenue neutral carbon tax such as CCL's Carbon Fee and Dividend would be the most popular and effective mechanism to bring down CO2 emissions. Far simpler than Cap and Trade, it would avoid complicated regulation or hefty subsidies from the tax payer and would help shift fossil fuel lock-in. Read more by Judith Knott...
