    The Need To Grow - April 22nd, 3:30-4:30pm

    Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary, The Need to GROW! The movie link will be sent to registered participants beforehand to watch on their own time, before the live Zoom Q&A on April 22nd 3:30-4:30 pm PST.

    The Need To GROW takes you inside the hearts and innovations of three very different leaders — an 8-year-old girl challenges the ethics of a beloved organization — a renegade farmer struggles to keep his land as he revolutionizes resource-efficient agriculture — and an accomplished visionary inventor faces catastrophe in the midst of developing a game-changing technology. You can watch the trailer here. Stay tuned for more details on how to register and participate!

    You will be sent a link to watch the film via email, and a secondary link will be provided to you for the Live Q&A Session.

    The film takes a solutions-based approach to how we can, using the technology we already have, mitigate the enormous global issues we currently face. The main themes/solutions looked at in the film are around: empowerment of women and girls; marine regeneration; regenerative agriculture; renewable energy; and circular economy. It's a story of hope, and a powerful tool to encourage people to take action. You can watch the trailer here.
