Event Details

Watch and learn with the modern sustainability film Island President that tells the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced—the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. After bringing democracy to the Maldives after thirty years of despotic rule, Nasheed is now faced with an even greater challenge: as one of the most low-lying countries in the world, a rise of three feet in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives enough to make them uninhabitable.

Join in a casual community discussion about the themes of the film and learn how you can make a difference. Family friendly; recommended for older children and adults.
