KEC Presents: Beyond Climate

Continuing with KEC Presents’ Conversations about Climate Action, Beyond Climate takes viewers beyond the headlines and into the heart of the issues. The film holistically connects the larger patterns of climate change with the human dimension, and what it looks like from across the Salish Sea to the Okanogan Valley. Shot throughout the province over many years, the collective wisdom and perspectives of Indigenous leaders, local communities, scientists, and policymakers are featured. Dr. David Suzuki – renowned scientist, broadcaster and environmentalist – helps guide the journey as the narrator of the film. But David is more than just a narrator; he’s a long-term resident of BC, having lived most of his life in Vancouver, and this film is part of his enduring legacy. Now, in his 80s, Suzuki reflects back on his life and how his home province is changing and offers his personal perspectives on the environment, economy, and opportunity to navigate our complex future if we “pull back and give nature a chance.” Addressing many of the pressing issues facing BC – from pipelines, liquefied natural gas, salmon, and Indigenous rights – the film is a timely contribution to the province and country as we grapple with climate change, the paramount issue of our time.

After a break, we continue with Katharine Hayhoe’s TED Talk:
The most important thing you can do to fight climate change: talk about it.
