Stop by the Ecologistics booth at Pacific Wildlife Care’s Central Coast Wildlife Festival on Saturday, May 12 from 11 am-4 pm at Mission Plaza to see the award-winning documentary series Kids Can Save the Planet. Created by 13-year old filmmaker Dylan D’Haeze, the series features three films aimed at children 10 years old and above.
Plastic is Forever follows plastic trash to where it ends up and features conversations with representatives from the EPA, Surfrider Foundation, Whale and Dolphin Conservation and Scripps Institute of Oceanography. Everything Connects shows kids that what happens on Earth affects them and what they do affects the Earth. An alarming “birth counter” in a corner of the screen shows how many babies are being born while the film is running. This part of the series shows kids how communities can live a sustainable lifestyle to ensure a healthy planet for future generations. Finally, Tipping Point focuses on climate change and what kids can do about it. Dylan interviews politicians and scientists from Woods Hole Research Center, the Alliance for Climate Education, O’Neill Sea Odyssey and The Climate Reality Leadership Corp.
The screening is free and the films will run continuously throughout the day. Each film is approximately 20 minutes in length. Click here for more information about Kids Can Save the Planet and to see trailers of the three films.
