The Age of Consequences – Screening & Discussion with Producer Sophie Robinson2017-10-12T09:08:55+00:00

Join us for a screening of The Age of Consequences, a powerful documentary that investigates the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity, migration, and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability.

Whether a long-term vulnerability or sudden shock, the film unpacks how water and food shortages, drought, extreme weather, and sea-level rise function as ‘accelerants of instability’ and ‘catalysts for conflict’ in volatile regions of the world.

Following the screening, the film’s executive producer, Sophie Robinson, will lead a discussion.

The event will begin at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, November 1, in the Pugh Auditorium at the Benson University Center. Admission is free and seats are limited.

Sophie Robinson is a former grassroots climate organizer who has changed paths to pursue filmmaking for social change. She coordinated 350 Massachusetts – one of the leading statewide climate networks in the country- for two years at the climate change nonprofit Better Future Project.

Sophie has Psychology and Environmental Science degrees from Williams College, and is currently working toward a masters degree in Sustainability and Environmental Management from Harvard.
