Youth Unstoppable - Film Premiere and Panel Discussion
Date and Time
380 Lygon St, Carlton VIC 3053, Australia
UNAA Victoria Young Professionals Network, in conjunction with the Transitions Film Festival, is pleased to present the Australian premiere of Youth Unstoppable - a film about young climate activists (see more below).
The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion (see panelist information below).
Tickets include a glass of wine - please indicate your preference for Red or White wine when you book your ticket.
Youth Unstoppable is the result of award-winning filmmaker Slater Jewell-Kemer's eight year documentation of the global youth climate movement.
Slater Jewell-Kemker began filming when she was 15 years old and has spent the eight years since traveling the world to UN climate summits while documenting the life of young activists.
Jewell-Kemker found that climate change was not just stories in the news for these activists but often the reality of daily life in their towns and villages.
