About the Film: "Living the Change is an 85 minute documentary that explores solutions to the global crises we face today – solutions any one of us can be part of – through the inspiring stories of people pioneering change in their own lives and in their communities in order to live in a sustainable and regenerative way. Directors Jordan Osmond and Antoinette Wilson have brought together stories from their travels, along with interviews with experts able to explain how we come to be where we are today. From forest gardens to composting toilets, community supported agriculture to time banking, Living the Change offers ways we can rethink our approach to how we live."
We invite you to join us at 7 pm on May 31st to discuss the film and brainstorm ideas for action, especially in the COVID era. Our discussion will begin with some perspectives from Gen Z Sustainable Ballard interns, then turn to a larger group discussion. If our attendance is high enough we will use breakout rooms.
