Event description

Description

Greening RMIT is hosting a screening of the documentary Island Earth!

This is an amazing film that is absolutely stunning and definetly worth a watch. It is about a young indigenous scientist's journey through the corn fields of GMO companies and loi patches of traditional Hawaiian elders reveals modern truths and ancient values that can save our food future.

Island Earth brings this question to life by taking us on the ground to Hawaii, the “ground zero” where all of these issues collide in sharp relief. Less than two centuries ago, native Hawaiians fed their large population through some of the most historically sustainable agricultural practices ever documented. Yet modern-day Hawaii now imports 80-90% of their food supply from elsewhere in the world, due to a complex web of public policy and private interests. Within two generations, the Hawaiians have become canaries in the coal mine for food issues that are affecting the entire planet.

There will be snacks before hand and a drink tab afterwoulds! So please come along to enjoy a fun night of good discussion, a great film and an oppertunity to hear what the vaious sustainability clubs are up too at RMIT
