Climate Warriors Film Screening

Thank you for attending the Environmental Documentary Screening of Climate Warriors on December 12th!

CLIMATE WARRIORS is a unique cinematic documentary that motivates everybody to become part of the climate warrior movement.

As a passionate fighter for climate transition, Carl-A. Fechner is connecting people from diverse backgrounds on both sides of the Atlantic.

The climate warriors are victims of pollution, kid-activists and advocates from different backgrounds wanting to protect the planet. Wars are fought over fossil fuels. With this film, Carl-A shows how human rights can be kept in balance in favor of peace. Activists raise their voices in resistance to lobbyists and inhumane social realities, offering solutions with cutting edge technologies and inspiring activism.

We had a great panel discussion moderated by Bronwyn Major, Community Organizer, Surfer, Activist and panelists Kevin McKeown, City of Santa Monica Councilmember, Andrea Ostenso, Sustainable Cities Associate at Global Green USA and Nalleli Cobo, Founding Member, South Los Angeles Youth Leadership Coalition and Member, STAND LA
