Venue: Burlington Public Library (Central Branch)
Admission: $5/ free for BG members!
Presented in partnership with the Burlington Public Library & Burlington Green Environmental Association, we invite you to join us for this special screening of Love Thy Nature!
Narrated by Liam Neeson, Love Thy Nature points to how deeply we’ve lost touch with nature – and takes us on a mesmerizing cinematic journey through the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world.
Neeson is the voice of “Sapiens” (our collective humankind) who, in the past few thousand years, has come to believe that we have transcended nature. Yet, experts uncover how a new era of nature-connection might just be dawning: “Biomimicry” scientists look to the natural world for the most brilliant cutting edge inventions, ecologists unveil how nature restores our communities, and doctors are finding new ways in which nature heals the body, mind, and brain.
The winner of 26 awards, Love Thy Nature shares the dazzling spectacles of our planet, while showing that a renewed connection with nature is key – not only to our well being, but also to solving our environmental and climate crises. And Sapiens’ journey reveals how a relationship with nature ignites a sense of meaning and wonder so profound that it touches us at the very core of what it means to be human.
This event includes a film presentation, complimentary refreshments courtesy of Goodness Me!, a free eco-prize raffle thanks to MEC, and an audience discussion on how global issues can be tackled locally.
Admission is $5/person to support event costs and FREE for BG Members. Not a supporting Member yet? Sign up today here!
