Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot Join Forces in Climate Crisis Short Film Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot Join Forces in Climate Crisis Short Film

"We can still fix this" is the wonderful and inspiring message by Greta Thunberg, the 16 year old activist that has become the face of the climate crisis, and British environmentalist George Monbiot, in their new short film about the climate crisis.

Made by Gripping Films, the film’s director, Tom Mustill said they tried to make the film with the "tiniest environmental impact possible". To interview Greta, they caught trains, they charged their hybrid car at George’s house, they used green energy and recycled archive footage rather than shooting new.

The film is engaging, powerful and inspiring. It urges us to take action before it's too late, offers us an amazing solution that exists today (I won't do a spoiler alert - you'll have to watch the film to find out for yourself) and leaves us with an important message and the three key things we can all do.

This video and call for action from Greta and George comes during a big week.

Not only has our world just seen the largest climate protests in history, with estimates of over 4 million people striking during the Global Climate Strike in 163 countries, but Greta has delivered speeches to the US Members of Congress, has testified at The House Committe on Foreign Affairs and will play a part at the UN Climate Summit in New York from 21 - 23 September 2019.

The UN Building in New York is currently showing a powerful art installation by artist Joseph Michael. The images include an iceberg and "Voices For The Future", quotes from six young advocates including Greta Thunberg's above. 

It is difficult to escape all the news and events happening at the moment about the climate crisis and the climate emergency and it can seem overwhelming but it is important to remember a couple of things; we don't have the privelege of time and hopefully where people go, politicians and leaders will follow.
