Before the Flood
Before the Flood, presented by National Geographic, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. He goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction. He also discovers a calculated disinformation campaign orchestrated by powerful special interests working to confuse the public about the urgency of the growing climate crisis. With unprecedented access to thought leaders around the world, DiCaprio searches for hope in a rising tide of catastrophic news.
Towards Energy Democracy
How are people across the world taking back power over the energy sector, kicking-back against the rule of the market and reimagining how energy might be produced, distributed and used?
How can the concept of energy democracy be deployed to demand a socially just energy system, with universal access, fair prices and secure, unionised and well-paid jobs?
This short video summarises the discussions and outcomes from an international workshop on energy democracy held in Amsterdam in February 2016.
The UK Cooperative Economy 2016
The UK co-operative sector's 7,000 co-operatives employ 223,000 people, are owned 17.5 million members and turned over £34 billion last year.
But what if that was just the start? What if more people had a say over the things that matter to them - their work, their shops, their local area? This short film highlights the performance of the UK's dynamic co-operative sector, the difference it makes and asks, what if? http://www.uk.coop @CooperativesUK
