If you could know the truth about the threat of climate change, and how what you eat can make a difference, would you want to know? Join us for a special screening of 'Before the Flood', followed by the chance to quiz world-experts in environmental science and sustainability from the University of Cambridge.
 
'Before the Flood' features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace to witness climate change first-hand. He goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction. He also discovers a calculated disinformation campaign orchestrated by powerful special interests working to confuse the public about the urgency of the growing climate crisis.
This event is hosted by the Cambridge Global Food Security Initiative and the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute. The film is presented by National Geographic from Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens. Ticket price includes a drink and nibbles.
