The Earth Alive Film Series launched in Vancouver on 24 February as part of the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival (VIMFF). The talks and movies that week intended to initiate a better understanding of what can be done to halt the destruction of ecosystems and biodiversity, and stimulate the desire for all to be part of an ever growing social movement promoting justice, peace and sustainability. Earth Alive is a partnership of VIMFF, One Earth, the H.R.MacMillan Space Centre and the David Suzuki Foundation. Watch an English or French preview of Sustainability Productions / One Earth’s own video series online.
