From Acadamy Award Winners Leonardo Di Caprio and Fisher Stevens
Executive Producer Marin Scorsese
If you could know the truth about the threat of climate change — would you want to know? Before the Flood, presented by National Geographic, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic 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. With unprecedented access to thought leaders around the world, DiCaprio searches for hope in a rising tide of catastrophic news.
Guest Speaker for the evening is Eamon Ryan, the Leader of the Green Party. He has spent the last twenty years working at the highest policy level in local government, the Dáil, and in the European Council of Ministers. Eamon chairs the Digital and Energy Policy Groups for the Institute of International and European Affairs in Dublin. He has also worked on www.climategathering.org to establish a safe space to consider how to communicate the issue of Climate Change. Eamon currently represents the constituency of Dublin Bay South. He had previously served as Dáil TD for Dublin South from 2002 to 2011 and was Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources from 2007 to 2011.
