We are excited to share an uplifting video created by Lara Tomov from Stories for Action, highlighting the power of individual and community action in the face of climate change. Lara's unique perspective and storytelling approach have beautifully captured the essence of our shared dedication to making a positive impact on our environment.

We believe this short video will serve as a source of inspiration and motivation for all of us as we continue our journey towards a sustainable future.

Did you get to attend BCAG's first ever "Movie Night" at the Daly Leach Community Center on January 19th? Featuring BBC's "The Year Earth Changed" with David Attenborough and containing never-before-seen footage, more than a few of the nearly 50 enthusiastic attendees got a little misty seeing the joy on a young man's face when for the first time he was able to see mountains normally hidden by air pollution, or how within a few months the water quality in a river that was once rated as "poor" became excellent, or the many nearly unbelievable ways in which the planet made such startling gains in healing itself.

Is it possible or even desirable to stay in a lock-down mode? Of course not, but this film offered undeniable proof that the planet can heal itself when we choose to coexist with nature. For example, an especially moving scene was how a conservation trust in India helped plant hundreds of acres of wild rice and grasses. Whereas previously hundreds of humans and elephants were killed annually when the elephants need to eat and the villagers need to grow crops collided, now the elephants are content to stay in the buffer zone, leaving them and the villagers safe - not one elephant or human was harmed in the villages for the year after the experiment began, and now adjacent communities are starting the same program.

eatsleeppop.com/movies/the-year-earth-changed/ summed it up beautifully:

We must share our spaces with wildlife. Scientists propose small temporary shutdowns around the world of wild and urban spaces. It has been proven that by requiring ocean traffic to slow down and grouping vessel traffic we can improve ocean environments. Encouraging good conduct amongst tourists and tour guides will be crucial. As always, we must continue to consider our consumption. Do we really need all the stuff we think we do? Have we learned that we can do with a lot less this year? We don’t need so much stuff, so much travel, so many interactions, so many errands. We don’t need to kill the dandelions, the bees first food, to have a perfect lawn. We can live without using a disposable cup from the coffee shop every day.

This planet is not just ours. It hasn’t been ours for millions of years before we were here, and will not be ours when we are gone. The damage we have done is unmatched, but we have seen in the last year that our beautiful, life-giving planet wants to heal, and can do so quickly if given the chance. The animals are willing to adapt and live in harmony with us. Can we say the same? The Year Earth Changed made me consider what is important. If we don’t, and we don’t soon, future generations of all species that live on this planet will not survive the devastation we have wrought.

By the attendees' reaction, Movie Night was very well received with requests for us to provide more. Stay tuned!

Thanks to the fine folks at Daly Leach Community Center and Apple TV for their generosity that made this event possible.

This film was heart-opening, inspiring and sometimes hilarious too. We had a great night.

If you've seen BBC documentaries, you already know that the quality of their productions is unmatched. This 48 minute video, rated as a Top 10 Best Nature Documentary by watchmojo is narrated by none other than David Attenborough, is uplifting, moving, and shows how remarkably quickly the planet can heal itself when given a chance. Shot across five continents shortly after the Covid lockdown, you'll see how literally within a few days after lockdown, almost unbelievable improvements were attained in the air, water, and quality of life for animals as well as humans across the globe.

Not only does this video bring hope, it's a thought-provoking testament that the planet can be healed if we so choose.
