As part of “What the COP?” initiative, Oban Youth Cafe hosts 4 free film screenings & discussions with support from Oban Phoenix Cinema and Oban-based curator Naoko Mabon.
27-30 October, 6.30pm, Oban Phoenix Cinema Screen2
We hear a lot about the climate crisis and COP26 these days, but don’t we wonder: What on earth happens during UN climate summits?; Who makes the decisions?; Whose voices are excluded?; What’s at stake during COP26?; How we, both as individuals and a community, can understand these issues and think of a collective action towards them?
Each screening is held in Screen 2 in the Oban Phoenix Cinema, and starts 6.30pm, followed by an approx. 30min group discussion about the film, in which the audience will take part. The discussion is supported by Dr Leslie Mabon (The Open University), an environmental social scientist who is an expert in the topic of climate change in the coastal community and climate justice context.
The seats are limited. To check the film details and to book your seat, please visit Oban Phoenix Cinema’s website:
