What are the consequences of a childhood removed from nature? One generation from now most people in North America will have spent more time in the virtual world than in nature. New media technologies have improved our lives in countless ways; information now appears with a click, overseas friends are part of our daily lives, and even grandma loves Wii.
But what are we missing when we are behind screens? And how will this impact our children, our society, and eventually, our planet?
Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Educators (NLEE) – in partnership with the Newfoundland and Labrador Environment Network (NLEN) – will be hosting two FREE Connections Events to screen “Play Again” to the public.
STEPHENVILLE – CNA Main Lecture Theatre Fowlow Bldg.
Presented in partnership with the Bay St. George Sustainability Committee Monday, Feb 21st, 8:00 – 10:00 pm
CORNER BROOK – CNA Main Lecture Theatre
Presented in partnership with the Model Forest of NL Monday, Feb 28th, 7:00- 9:00 pm
Parents, teachers, youth, educators, community members – all are welcome to attend! There will be networking after the film; coffee, tea and snacks will be provided.
If you would like to arrange a screening for your workplace or to students at your school while the film is here on the West Coast, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time.
