Film ‘Tomorrow’ to be shown Tue 20 Nov

There will be another showing of the film ‘Tomorrow’ in Hull, arranged by Ground and Transition & Permaculture Hull, taking place at Ground on Tue 20 November 2018 at 7.30 pm. At the showing T&PH organised in September, a lot of people were impressed with the film, so the November showing is a chance for you to see the film if you missed it in September, or to see it again. The event is free.

Regarded as an optimistic film, ‘Tomorrow‘  identifies initiatives that have proven themselves valuable in ten different countries around the world. These concrete solutions to environmental and social challenges of the twenty-first century include examples from agriculture, energy, economy, education and governance.  Entry is FREE and the film will be followed by a discussion and refreshments

The idea of the EF!film club is to have regular gatherings to get inspired by those acting against climate change, ecocide, speciesism, and to chat late into the night and work out how to save the world. The next screening will be on the 20th November and will be a showing of Tomorrow, a really positive and inspiring documentary about the steps people all over the world are taking to combat climate change.
