Thanks for joining Climate Smart & partners for a series of virtual events, films & discussions all about the intersection of human health, the climate crisis, and social equity. In addition to our practical Q&A about preparing for wildfire smoke given COVID-19, we loved watching and discussing two provocative short films, Unbreathable and Cooked, with you. Both spurred important discussion as we consider who is most vulnerable to climate impacts, how we build resilient and equitable communities, and how we care for our families and neighbors amidst a changing climate.
Summer Series: Health, Climate & Community
Unbreathable Film & Panel, August 19
This short (~30min) film commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Clean Air Act, and explores why the fight for clean air and a healthy climate are more urgent than ever. With panelists and perspectives from across Montana, our discussion illuminated how climate justice and human health intersect and how we can work for solutions locally, statewide and beyond. This event was organized by the American Lung Association & co-sponsored by Climate Smart Missoula & Montana Health Professionals for a Healthy Climate.
