At a time when all these things are threatened by pollution and climate change, how do we support a healthy planet in the years to come? This movie and community conversation will delve into these questions. FILM DESCRIPTION: 82-year-old retired Chicagoland engineer Jim Goodman and his wife Annie are alarmed about the ever more severe climate change crisis, and know their generation has failed to adequately address it. With the environmental clock ticking, the Goodmans enlist the aid of some equally concerned young people to unleash their creativity and usher in a new generation of climate change problem-solvers. Hear from young people who have been directly impacted by the effects of climate change, like Sean Newsom who survived the 2018 wildfires in Paradise, California, and those that are working to make a difference like Shreya Ramachandran, the high school senior who invented an innovative solution for reusing greywater to address water scarcity. With commentary from experts like Susan Casey-Lefkowitz of the National Resources Defense Council and astronaut and physicist John Grunsfeld, The Power of Us underscores the urgency of the climate crisis and shows the power of an intergenerational, collaborative movement to fight climate change, with youth leading the charge into the future. This youth-organized event has been sponsored by South Seattle Climate Action and Mt Baker Meaningful Movies.https://ovee.itvs.org/screenings/51cgqannemiller@meaningfulmovies.orgfalseMM/DD/YYYY
