Presenting positive pictures and providing a discussion space for people to be inspired, proactive and positive members of our flourishing Hackney community. It’s a space for learning, sharing ideas, and finding solutions to challenges that our locality faces such as peak oil, climate change, and an unsustainable economy in ways that strengthen community.
For the fourth event we will be screening 'DIRT! The Movie' which takes you inside the wonders of the soil. It tells the story of Earth's most valuable and underappreciated source of fertility - from its miraculous beginning to its crippling degradation. It brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. The film teaches us: "When humans arrived 2 million years ago, everything changed for dirt. And from that moment on, the fate of dirt and humans has been intimately linked." But more than the film and the lessons that it teaches, DIRT the Movie is a call to action. "The only remedy for disconnecting people from the natural world is connecting them to it again."
The screening will be followed by group discussion on 'Mapping food in Hackney: where do you get your food and why?'
