THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING is coming to Sudbury and you don’t want to miss it.

Sudbury, November 17, 2015 - This Changes Everything is a film that demonstrates why the  changes  needed  to  avert  climate  chaos  are  our  best  chance  to  build  the  more  equitable, liveable and healthier societies we want and need.

  • Hosted by:  The Council of Canadians (National), The Council of Canadians (Sudbury Chapter), Laurentian University School of the Environment, and Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury, in association with Sudbury Indie Cinema.

This Changes Everything presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines of  both  fossil  fuel  extraction  and  the  climate  crisis  it  is driving.  Interwoven  with  these  stories  of  struggle  is  Naomi Klein’s  narration,  connecting  the  carbon  in  the  air with the economic system that put it there. The film builds to its powerful key idea: that in addressing the crisis of climate change we can transform our failed economic system into something radically better.

The film is  based  on  the  critically  acclaimed  non-fiction  best-seller  by  award-winning  journalist  and  author, Naomi  Klein.  Klein says,  “Traveling  around  the  world with the  book  in  the  last  year,  I’m  finding  audiences hungry for bold, visionary responses... The real leadership is coming from the streets, from communities: we’re honoured to tell these stories and bring these voices to a wider audience.”

“We see the impact of climate change in our own community, in the form of increased storms and flooding, the growth and spreading of invasive species, in the arrival of lyme disease, and in shorter snow seasons. We see the impact around the world. And, we see a growing need and desire for a better world where we care for each other and for our earth,” says Elaine Porter, member of the Sudbury Chapter of the Council of Canadians. “We are thrilled to be bringing this film to Sudbury, on the territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek First Nation, and we encourage everyone to attend.”

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op is creating independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media. Contact the Sudbury Working Group at grassrootssudburymedia@gmail.com or follow us on Facebook.

Support local grassroots media - get a membership! Our goal is to raise $2000 per year to pay local writers for local content and support emerging writers.  Help us reach that goal.  Download a membership form here

We are able to pay for a limited number of strong local pieces.  Contact us to pitch an idea, or for story ideas.

We encourage local grassroots groups to submit content about their work, issues and events.  We also have resources available to help grassroots groups get their message out.  Find out more here.
