Every great movie deserves a great sequel.
In my last post, I wrote about the short climate change video that was narrated by Morgan Freeman for the Sept. 23, 2014 United Nations Climate Summit. That video, "What's Possible," painted a picture of world I think we'd all like to live in and a call to leaders to help us get there. Now, versus later.
In the sequel, "A World of Solutions," Morgan Freeman is back. "Climate change" often has an air of "doom and gloom" associated with it. Yes, it's a planetary problem that can be huge, overwhelming, and depressing. But out of the peril of the problems rises a need for the buoyancy of change and a willingness to take action & make things happen.
I tell my students all the time: every good story needs a problem and a solution. Morgan Freeman, director Louie Schwartzberg, producer Lyn Davis Lear, writer Andrew Dickson, the Moving Arts Studio, and the Lear Family Foundation are offering that solution in "A World of Solutions."
Together, we can make it happen: "through actions large, and small."
