Film Screening: Scarred Lands
Start: July 26, 2018• 6:30 PM
End: July 26, 2018• 8:30 PM
Join us for a free film screening of Scarred Lands & Wounded Lives: The Environmental Footprint of War.
Ecosystems around the world are in distress from forces of humanity's own making: increasing population, unsustainable demands on natural resources, habitat and species loss, and climate change. One of the most destructive of human behaviors - war - is not commonly included as a contributor to the growing global environmental crisis. Yet, in all its stages, from the production of weapons through combat, military operations pollute land, air, and water, destroy ecosystems, and drain limited natural resources.
