Film For Students – Young Voices for the Planet
As part of the Mass Climate Action Network (MCAN) Young Voices for the Planet documentary film series, Mass Audubon’s Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary will screen four short films, Wednesday, May 10, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
“The Young Voices for the Planet short films show the difference young people can make,” said Carol Oldham, director of the MCAN. “These touching stories of kids taking action in their communities to make your world a better place is inspiring and just what we all need right now.”
The short films document youth speaking out about climate change, creating solutions, and taking action. Highlights include stories of youth in the United States and Germany implementing a statewide ban on plastic bags, saving their school $53,000 in energy costs, and planting millions of trees, in addition to changing laws and minds in an effort to reduce their carbon footprint of at homes, in schools, and throughout communities.
Following the screening, one of the young stars from the film “Save Tomorrow” will lead a discussion about her experience changing town bylaws in Lexington, MA, which allowed for solar panels on public buildings.
