When it comes to climate change, half of Canadians feel overwhelmed and don’t know what to do. Resilience: Transforming our Community makes this global crisis a personal issue, right in our own backyard. With a message around action and working together, the viewer moves from feelings of unease about the future to empowerment in community-based change and hope as they learn that each of us has a role to play in transforming our community.
This uplifting film offers ways to build resilience in ourselves and our community by transforming the way we live. A scientist and a poet join forces to raise awareness of climate change, showing how farmers; Indigenous fishermen and elders; young people and artists; entrepreneurs and local residents in a small southern Ontario community respond to climate disruption – their fears, hopes, and actions. The film’s message, “let’s talk about it,” offers solutions at the individual, community and municipal levels, because action is the best way to
deal with despair. If we wait for governments, it will be too late. If we act individually, it won’t be enough. But if we work together, it might just be enough, in time.
