NIC Nursing Students Present An Inconvenient Sequel
Join a coalition of globally minded NIC nursing students, Wednesday, January 17 for the screening Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.
The follow-up to Gore’s wildly popular An Inconvenient Truth makes a compelling case for why climate change is the fundamental political, economic and moral issue facing humanity in the 21st Century. Join Gore as he travels the world arguing that, while the stakes have never been higher, the solutions to the climate change crisis are still within reach.
The presentation will feature an introduction and post‐film discussion led by the Comox Valley’s own Will Cole Hamilton, one of 35 Canadians who trained under Al Gore last summer and are committed to implementing climate change solutions.
Admission is by donation to NIC's Global Learning Initiative, a student-driven project which fosters awareness of global issues through partnerships with local communities and individuals. It has supported nursing students’ experiences in remote communities in Uganda, Nepal and Mozambique and it continues to strengthen cultural understandings through field schools to Aboriginal and global communities.
Fair trade coffee and chocolate will be available for purchase before and after the film, with proceeds helping fund NIC nursing students conducting field studies. The film starts at 6:30 pm at NIC’s Stan Hagen Theatre at the Comox Valley campus, with the doors opening at 6 pm.
