CBS Sustainability at Green Week: Movie Screening ft. EDMC
iokos Copenhagen has invited Stefano Ponte to join and comment on the documentary screening organized in collaboration with the Environment and Development Movie Club, during the event chain under Green Week at CBS.
Filmmaker Sue Williams investigates the underbelly of the electronics industry and reveals how even the smallest devices have deadly environmental and health costs. From the intensely secretive factories in China, to a ravaged New York community and the high tech corridors of Silicon Valley, the film tells a story of environmental degradation, of health tragedies, and the fast approaching tipping point between consumerism and sustainability.
The screening is in parternship with The Environment and Development movie club (EDMC). They are an initiative at the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen. The EDMC seeks to nurture an intellectually stimulating and socially vibrant study environment through regular events with movie displays, debates and discussions.
The theme of the movie club is the environment-development nexus, by which we mean how processes of economic development and growth affect environments and people across the globe in multiple and at times contradictory ways.
