- National Park City Group
Launch of Wee Green Screen
With bars, restaurants and cinemas closed across the city once more we’re inviting you to join us for some wee green nights in. Over the 3 weeks (fingers crossed) of the new restrictions we will run a series of online screenings of recent films from around the world with environmental themes.
Following each screening we’ll host a short discussion to look at how the film’s themes link to our campaign for Glasgow – and other cities around the globe – to become National Park Cities – places that are greener, healthier and wilder for all citizens. We’ve just launched the first draft of our proposal for Glasgow to become a National Park City, and we’re looking for projects that support our vision. We hope the films and follow up discussions will help inspire ideas for action.
We’re kicking the event off with a screening and discussion of the David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet film at 7pm on Thurs 26th Nov. Honest, revealing and urgent, this film is Sir David Attenborough’s witness statement for the natural world – offering a powerful first-hand account of humanity’s impact on nature and a message of hope for future generations. Watch the trailer at www.wwf.org.uk/updates/david-attenborough-life-our-planet.
Further films will be announced soon, and we are looking forward to screenings of ‘Natura Urbana’ – a fascinating exploration of the Brachen of Berlin – and ‘Kiss The Ground’ – an Oscar-worthy documentary about one of the most important ecosystems on Earth, the soil.
So... grab your favourite cinema snacks and join us to look at how we can come together to take some crucial steps towards putting nature at the heart of everything we do. Sign up at
Please note that you will need access to a Netflix account to take part in the screening of A Life On Our Planet.
