Glenmalure Rural Energy Group
The group will be screening the movie “Demain” on Thursday 6th June 7.30 – 9.30pm at the Brockagh Resource Centre in Laragh. “Demain” is a 2015 French documentary film directed by Cyril Dion and Melanie Laurent. Faced with a future that scientists say is a great cause for concern, the film has the distinction of not giving in to catastrophism. Optimistically, it identifies initiatives that have proven themselves in ten countries around the world: concrete examples of solutions to environmental and social challenges of the 21st Century, be it agriculture, energy, economy, education and governance. All are welcome.
