A Meal & A Movie: Community Gathering On The Evening of the Climate Strike
Join Beacon Hill Friends House for a celebration of community with a meal and a movie. As the weather begins to chill in the late summer season, we will be serving a hearty vegan soup alongside local breads. Come enjoy food and community with old and new friends after the climate strike–– or, if you couldn’t make it to the strike events, take this opportunity to gather with others.

About the film: THE WISDOM TO SURVIVE 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 (including Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, and Jihan Gearan) 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.
