I Am Greta – Sustainable Works film screening & discussion

May 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm PDT

Join Sustainable Works for a screening of I Am Greta, followed by a panel discussion with local youth working to make a difference.

I am Greta, the story of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, is told through compelling, never-before-seen footage in this intimate documentary from Swedish director Nathan Grossman. Starting with her one-person school strike for climate action outside the Swedish Parliament, Grossman follows Greta – a shy schoolgirl with Asperger’s – in her rise to prominence, and her galvanizing global impact as she sparks school strikes around the world. The film culminates with her astonishing wind powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City.

You can watch the trailer here.

A Panel discussion with Santa Monica College Associated Students Director of Sustainability, Tatiana Claure, Climate Action Santa Monica (CASM) Steering Committee member & Climate Corps Lead Intern, Mica Williams, and CASM Member and Southern California Governor, Junior State of America, Lilly Chertock will follow the film.
