The speaker, Matthew Frith, is Deputy Director of the London Wildlife Trust and has a keen interest in the social and political aspects of nature and conservation. Matthew will talk about connection and disconnection from nature. This subject is highly relevant at a time when our open spaces are under threat and when disconnection and alienation seem to be on the increase.
Transition Brentford are organising a screening of a new documentary film called ‘The Crisis of Civilization’ to be held at the Docking Station (Brentford 108 High Street TW8 8AT) on Saturday 3rd March at 7.15 p.m
The film swiftly and decisively investigates how ecological disaster, financial meltdown, dwindling oil reserves, terrorism and food shortages are converging symptoms of a single, failed global system. It identifies root causes of the failing system challenging us as human beings to question of ourselves: ‘what we are going to do about it?’.

The makers of the film Dean Puckett, animator Lucca Benney and international security analyst Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed have generously agreed to attend the screening to answer questions after the film, after which we could have a group discussion!
There are some posters available on the C of C website which can be printed out to publicise the screening.
