We celebrated Earth Day by hosting a screening of episode 1 of the Showtime series “Years of Living Dangerously.” About 20 students joined us for the showing and participated in a lively discussion about climate change. Students shared their perspectives on the drivers of climate change not only in terms of the science of global warming but also in regard to political and social agents. In addition, they discussed the possible local effects on Hawai‘i and the Pacific and how we could make personal and widespread changes in order to slow or counteract climate change.
The screening was organized in collaboration with UHWO biology professor Dr. Kimberly Carl who also moderated the after showing discussion. We hope to continue to partner with our awesome UHWO faculty to host screenings on campus.
If you’re interested in partnering with ‘Ulu’ulu to host a screening at UH or in your community, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
