2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
New Haven writer and documentary filmmaker Steve Hamm presents the case for society to pivot to become more sustainable and resilient and for individuals to become climate activists. He describes his journey with Pivot Projects, a global, all-volunteer initiative that was launched at the beginning of the COVID crisis and which resulted in his new book from Columbia University Press: The Pivot: Addressing Global Problems Through Local Action. He will show his new documentary, A River Speaks (34 minutes), which emerged out of Pivot Projects and explores the complex relationship between humans and the rest of nature. There will be time for discussion afterwards.
