WEAG to host screening of “Before the Flood” on March 21

The Waynflete Environmental Action Group (WEAG) is a student-led activity that raises awareness about environmental issues in our community. On Wednesday, March 21, WEAG will present a screening of Before the Flood. The film follows Leonardo DiCaprio as he examines current-day impacts of climate change. The picture also features President Obama, Pope Francis, and a host of climate experts.

While the topic is somewhat dark, there is also a hopeful side of the movie demonstrated by forward-thinking individuals like Elon Musk. It is a great documentary that generates lots of discussion around the issue of climate change and how it affects us.

After the screening, there will be a student-led dialogue where audience members will be encouraged to ask questions and discuss the film. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. in Franklin Theater and ends at 8:30 p.m. We hope to see you there!
