Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)—March 13, 2016. The Unitarian Universalist Community Church (UUCC), 70 Sycamore Street, Park Forest, will screen the documentary film ‘Call of Life’ on March 25 at 7 p.m. A discussion will follow the film.
‘Call of Life’ examines the collective and individual responses that will be needed to mitigate the impacts of the mass extinction and makes clear the critical choices we have before us. We face the potential of the natural world devastated beyond recognition, with the loss of human life in the billions. Yet, we still have time to avert the worst of the crisis and save much of the biosphere, if we act now. The first step to is to create broad public awareness of the problem—its magnitude and its implications. Only then can our whole society begin to recognize the systemic changes that will be required. The solution is clear: in order to save our planet and secure a future for our own species and all species, we need a new worldview. We must recognize that technology alone cannot save us. We must realize that business-as-usual is no longer an option. Instead, we need to create fundamental change in our culture, our minds, and our hearts. Unique among all human generations, those of us alive today have been given a great opportunity: one last chance to preserve the vitality and magnificence of the living planet that brought us into being, and is our only home.
The event is free and open to the public. Coffee, tea and snacks will be provided. Bring a snack to share if you wish. Optional donations gratefully appreciated.
