This film is inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything.Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.
Free showing of the short 350 film “Disobedience”
Disobedience introduces us to inspiring groups of people who are advocating for a better way of life for their families, their communities and their planet. In the process, scientists and scholars educate viewers on the role of civil disobedience in affecting reform, the economic impact of environmental catastrophe, and the myriad of social issues which are worsening in the midst of climate change.
FREE!! DO THE MATH FILM, SCREENING AND PRESENTATIONS WITH EH BOARD MEMBER.
The Do The Math movie is a 42-minute documentary film about the rising movement to change the terrifying math of the climate crisis and challenge the fossil fuel industry.
Our remaining global carbon budget is estimated to be 500 billion tons. As the major oil, coal and gas producers have over five times that amount in their reserves, what does it mean for the true value of these companies' shares? Some financial institutions are beginning to do the math.
A presentation with Environment Hamilton board member, Founder, CATCH writer and member of Hamilton350, Don Mclean will follow.

HAMILTON2PARIS CLIMATE RALLY. Nov. 29th.
When: 3:00 pm Sunday November 29th 2015 (the day before UN climate treaty discussions begin in Paris, France)
Where: Hamilton City Hall. First Nations will welcome other groups ‘migrating’ from various locations across Hamilton and Burlington, these groups having used climate-friendly means such as walking, cycling or using public transit to reach this destination.
Who: Indigenous, resident, business, student, environmental, labour, cultural, political and faith groups are working together to plan this event in which we expect hundreds of Hamiltonians will take part.
Confirmed participants include:
The Hamilton Quaker Meeting, Hikers for 350, Burlington Green, Hamilton Blue Dot movement, Fossil Free McMaster, Catholic Organization for Peace and Development, SOBI Hamilton, Hamilton Catholic Schools, Mustard Seed Food Co-op, Hamilton 350, KAIROS, Environment Hamilton, Eco-Wham churches, Unity of Hamilton, Climate Reality leaders, Hamilton chapter of Council of Canadians, Hamilton Car-Share, Green Party (Hamilton), OPIRG McMaster. More are expected.
Why: The biggest climate summit of the decade starts on November 30, and our leaders could reach an effective agreement to get the world off fossil fuels and navigate away from climate catastrophe, while signalling to politicians, boardrooms and stock-markets everywhere that the era of dirty energy is over. Winning won’t be easy -- but if we make leaders feel the power of this movement then we can win.
How: Many groups recognize the threats a changing climate poses for the health and safety and economic viability of our communities. We have many different views on how the climate crisis can be addressed, but our common concern recognizes that there are many responses to the challenge that must be explored and acted upon in order to protect our world, and help our communities adapt.
We will create a visual statement of many different groups coming together to work on a challenge that affects everyone. It will serve notice to leaders of all levels of government that climate change is an important issue for Hamilton and Burlington residents. We pledge to work together, with all of our various knowledge and skill sets, for solutions to climate related problems.
Environment Hamilton's contingent will meet at 2pm at the EH offices, 22 Wilson St., Hamilton. We will be signing letters to our officials before leaving as a group at 2.40 and walking together over to City Hall. We will be wearing green. Join us!
