On the occasion of High Ground 2018, we presented the first public screening of the documentary Women Bending the Curve on Climate Change in Vancouver on Thursday, March 22. Set in the context of the Paris climate change agreements, the new film tells the stories of climate change leaders from Canada’s West Coast working in renewable energy, city government, energy conservation, community engagement, sustainable food, finance and indigenous land stewardship. Their inspiring stories explore how climate science, meaningful action and women’s collaborative leadership intersect to bend the curve on climate change.
The sold out screening was followed by a discussion with the filmmaker Dr. Joanna Ashworth, Tzeporah Bergman and Tessica Truong, as well as Irene Lanzinger. Charley Beresford facilitated the discussion.
