Our Climate. Our Future.

Synergy Sustainability and Surfrider Foundation Vancouver Island co-host a film screening that will spark the conversation about Climate Change.

Join us at the Vic Theatre on December 8th for a film screening of Al Gore's documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, followed by a talk on what Victoria can do to tackle this global issue.

Climate Change can be a daunting issue, but the solutions start with us. Following the film, the City of Victoria will announce the goals within the new Climate Leadership Plan, Synergy will share information about local innovations, and Surfrider will convey what can be done at the individual level to take action on Climate Change.

Let's fill the room with movers n' shakers who want to see Victoria continue to shift towards a more sustainable future!

This is a 19+ event as beer and wine will be available for purchase along with some of our favorite movie theatre snacks! Please bring your own glass and help us keep this event green. Seating is not assigned.

About the film

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power follows fomer Vice President Al Gore as he continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world to train an army of activists and influence international climate change policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.
