Climate Matters

Spending time in nature can be great for both the body and mind, but now a growing body of research suggests that it can benefit our mental health as well.
A nature walk decreased the activity in an area of the brain linked to the risk of mental illness. Latest researcher proved that lack of exposure to nature could cause modern ills including depressive symptoms and anxiety.

Climate and nature are such intersectional topics and because the global climate and nature systems are interconnected this allows us to talk about jobs, economics, racial disparities, healthcare, security and that little issue of the very survival of driftnet species and humanity.
According to environmental writer James Conca humanity is witnessing a mass disappearance of natural elements and sites as well as drastic species loss.
However, life on earth has always been marked by periods of extinction, humanity today is combatting life on earth to near extinction. These extinctions are believed to be caused by major climatic disruptions, such as deforestation, global warming, sea-level change and man-made artificial molecules collisions.
As we are the large mammals on Earth estimated of 7.7 billion people today, human intervention cataclysmic events are unprecedented and ongoing pressure on the environment.

One million species are now on track to become extinct within the next few decades. The wild places of the world are disappearing and will continue to disappear until they are no more and every bird population we care about is in dramatic decline, the bees, the tuna, the coral reefs, and most of the species on the endangered list will disappear in a relatively short time.

Since parts of human activities are combatting life on earth to near extinction the film program Climate Matter indicates an urgent need for immediate reaction. With their film works, contributing artists recognize the importance of communicating a clear message as a reminder to the consequences.
