National Geographic’s new documentary “From Paris to Pittsburgh” will be shown for free Sunday evening, Aug. 11 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Ascension and Holy Trinity, Wyoming. The film is narrated by Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winning actress Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”). Join us in the parish hall at 334 Burns Avenue, Wyoming (enter through the arched red doors).
Following the 80-minute documentary, Larry Falkin, Director of Cincinnati’s Office of Environment and Sustainability, and Wyoming City Council member Sarah Stankorb will be on hand to answer your questions about sustainability progress in Greater Cincinnati.
The film shows the devastation already occurring from sea level rise, floods, and wildfires, but then demonstrates how state and local governments across the country are taking practical action to make their communities resilient through strategies that foster sustainable economic development, public health, and social justice.
The City of Cincinnati was named“Most Sustainable Major Metro in the U.S.” by Site Selection magazine in 2017 and 2018, and it was one of only 20 cities to win a Bloomberg American Cities Climate Challenge grant late last year. Stankorb is an environmentalist whose journalistic work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Atlantic, and Slate. She has been reporting recently on sustainability programs in Columbus and Cincinnati.
This film, produced by Bloomberg Philanthropies and Radical Media, is being offered through Interfaith Power and Light to draw faith communities together to inspire local community action to heal the climate for the benefit of all.
