Invermere Branch Earth Day AGM + Film: To The Ends Of The Earth

Event Date:
Saturday, April 22, 2017
Location:
Wilmer Hall

Let’s celebrate Earth Day together! Join us for Wildsight Invermere’s brief AGM, recapping 2016 and looking forward to 2017’s focus on Bees, Bears, Beavers and Bats, and followed by a screening of the film To The Ends of The Earth, a documentary about the state of our energy system today.

To The Ends of The Earth brings forward the voices of those who not only denounce the rise of extreme energy, but also envision the new world that is taking shape in its stead: a future beyond the resource pyramid, a post- growth economy.

The people featured in this documentary are uniquely positioned to watch this global crossroads unfold. For example, the mayor of an Inuit village in Canada’s high Arctic who is concerned that seismic testing for oil in the ocean is blowing up the eardrums of the animals that the Inuit hunt to survive. Or the environmental lawyer who goes on a journey to areas that produce energy for the Tarsands of Alberta – he learns of the inputs of energy that have to be put into this resource – and the reasons why the second largest oil project in the world is economically unsustainable. Or the river conservationist in Utah who fights to protect the Colorado River from oil shale projects that would disturb its headwaters. Check out the trailer here.

This is also your chance to step up and get involved. We are currently looking for keen individuals to join our Board of Directors, including the role of Secretary. Contact kim@wildsight.ca to learn more.
