Virtual Movie Screening and Panel Discussion: “Other Side of the Hill: Rural Perspectives on a Changing Climate”
August 18, 2021 - August 20, 2021
One event on August 21, 2021 at 12:00 pm
OTHER SIDE OF THE HILL explores the impacts of a changing climate in rural Eastern Oregon – as seen through the eyes of local leaders on the ground. From innovative timber operations to large scale solar, our film amplifies the voices of rural communities often left unheard, and shines a light on stories of progress and hope. In a time of perceived cultural divide between rural and urban, left and right, young and old, we discover common ground in an urgency to address a changing landscape.
Where can East & West, Republicans & Democrats, find the common ground needed to address climate change? How can industry and environmentalists work hand in hand? And how can local economies find opportunity in a lower emissions future? Other Side of the Hill explores the actions already taking place, and gives voice to stories of progress & hope.
Join the North County Climate Change Alliance for a virtual screening of this documentary (August 18-20) and a Panelist Q & A discussion (August 21 at 10:00 AM PT) featuring special guests Jim Walls and Nick Johnson, two of the film’s main characters.
