This is an informal evening with a number of documentaries about Climate Change in Solomon Islands to be filmed.
According to UNDP, the documentaries will present a wide range of global issues with experts from around the world.
UNDP said the feature documentary will be preceded by a collection of short videos that will help public understand the challenges of climate change in Solomon Islands.
Following the celebration of World Environment Day, UNDP stated such event will open opportunities for discussion of the issues in the documentaries and how it relates to Solomon Islanders.
This is a monthly series and the first series of screening will kick off on World Environment Day, June 5.
The first documentary will be “An Inconvenient Sequel,” the updated version of Al Gore’s advocacy efforts that helps us understand the significance of the Paris Climate Accord and the latest footage of how climate change is impacting people all around the world.
