Seacoast Permaculture presents a screening of “Arise – Women Healing the Environment” at The Waysmeet Center in Durham.
On every continent, women are working to protect and restore the natural environment, and empowering others to respect the earth. Arise presents the stories of a diverse group of 13 women in five countries who have initiated solution-oriented environmental projects in their communities, towns and villages including: replanting trees in Kenya, preserving sacred Native lands, protecting the rainforest in Ecuador, transforming food through urban agriculture, training women to build and install solar lights, and organizing to combat climate change.
Through these hopeful examples and new models, the women in the film challenge our current way of thinking about the environment, and encourage a shift in values to find a different, healthier way to view our relationship to the earth.
Free and open to the public. Film followed by a potluck dinner.
Seacoast Permaculture’s Film & Food nights are a chance to come together for both learning and getting to know each other better. We ask that you come with an open mind and heart to new information and new friends.
