Beyond the Classroom presents “The Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism & Community”

THE WISDOM TO SURVIVE (2014, 56 minutes) accepts the consensus of scientists that climate change has already arrived, and asks, what is keeping us from action? The film explores how unlimited growth and greed are destroying the life support system of the planet, the social fabric of the society, and the lives of billions of people. Will we have the wisdom to survive? The film features thought leaders and activists in the realms of science, economics and spirituality discussing how we can evolve and take action in the face of climate disruption. They urge us to open ourselves to the beauty that surrounds us and get to work on ensuring it thrives. “The Wisdom to Survive is both instructive and shows people working in practical, transformational, and imaginative ways to bring about a fundamentally different and more just and sustainable world." Joseph Nevins, Vassar College. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 23, 2014
