An inspirational film highlighting how it is possible to reverse the environmental degradation of the earth will be screened at Keswick’s Alhambra cinema next month.
Sustainable Keswick (SusKes) will showcase Kiss the Ground, which demonstrates that by regenerating the world’s soils the climate can be stabilised, lost ecosystems restored and abundant food supplies secured.
It will be shown at SusKes’s first Green Get Together since lockdown on Wednesday, 14th October, at 7-30pm.
There will also be a presentation about SusKes’s tree planting plans for the town’s Fitz Park and how it hopes to work with Cumbria Action for Sustainability on a zero carbon Cumbria.
Terry Sloan, the new chairman of SusKes, said that with the United Kingdom hosting the 26th UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, in November, 2021, it was critical that world leaders started to take “significant paradigm-changing decisions” on a global scale, just as has been done during the coronavirus crisis.
A film by TV broadcaster and natural historian David Attenborough will also be shown at the Alhambra on Monday .
It is his witness statement film, following on from his documentary called Extinction: The Facts, which has been shown on TV and is now available on BBCiplayer.
In David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, the audience will see clips of his early, carefree years spent with mountain gorillas, penguins and pangolins.
