About the film:

Two places at the edge of our planet are making headlines due to climate change: Thule, Greenland, because of record ice melts there; and Tuvalu, because this remote Pacific Island nation is one of the first countries on the verge of sinking as a result of rising sea levels. Whereas for us the warming of the planet occurs almost solely in the media, it is changing the entire existence for the inhabitants of the Thule and Tuvalu. The Film portrays how they are forced to abandon their traditional way of life as they move towards an unknown future.

The watch party will be held online so you can enjoy the film from the comfort of your own home. Hang around after the film for a discussion with other viewers and members of GAP about the realities of the film and to share ideas on some positive ways we can make a difference in the face of climate change.

About Earth Day 2021 Celebrations

What is Earth Day?

Earth Day marks the birth of the modern environmental movement. On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans (10% of the total population of the United States) took to their streets, parks and auditoriums to call for a healthier, more sustainable treatment of the environment. Individual groups fighting against air and water pollution, fossil fuels, land clearing, soil erosion, the loss of biodiversity and the extinction of wildlife; all united on Earth Day around their shared common values. On this day in 1970, Earth Day achieved a rare political alignment with grassroots values which spear-headed policy change throughout the United States.
