Paris to Portsmouth: Cities Respond to Climate Change

As a sequel to Edward Cameron’s presentation in April 2018 entitled Paris to Portsmouth, PS21 is pleased to present part II of that series. We will be showing the film Paris to Pittsburgh at the Portsmouth Public Library.

Paris to Pittsburgh is a new film from National Geographic, produced by RadicalMedia in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies — narrated by Emmy® and GoldenGlobe® Award-winning actress and activist Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”).

From coastal cities to America’s heartland, Americans are demanding and developing real solutions in the face of climate change. And as the weather grows more deadly and destructive, they aren’t waiting on Washington to act. Learn about their stories in Paris to Pittsburgh, and be inspired to create change in Portsmouth. Watch the trailer here.

The event commences at 6:30 PM on Wednesday February 20 in the Levenson Room at the Portsmouth Public Library. Seen below is a photo from an interview with Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto.

Immediately following the film, PS21 will host a discussion led by UNH climate scientist Cameron Wake. Portsmouth City Councilor Josh Denton will update us on efforts currently underway by the City of Portsmouth, as well as those soon to come.

We will reserve ample time for questions and discussion. The event is free and all are welcome. Please register online to help ensure sufficient seating.
