A quintessentially British and humorous take on climate change

Where: The Bacon Theatre, Dean Close School, Hatherley Road, Cheltenham, GL51 6EP

When: Monday, January 6, 8pm

There's a chance to view a new film on climate change and take part in a Q&A with its director and special guests, including Jonathan Porritt, at Cheltenham's Bacon Theatre in the New Year.

A Convenient Prequel (PG) is a quintessentially British and humorous take on climate change, Al Gore and Greta Thurnberg, coupled with a deconstruction of Swedish sustainability.

Director Jack Guest says: "In no uncertain terms we face a huge problem on planet earth and my film looks at turning that problem into an opportunity, showing that we can make things work, for everybody.

"It gives a positive message that things can get better and that change does not have to mean sacrifice. We already have the answers to climate change and we just need to implement them. The solutions for a stable climate do exist and they can enrich rather than restrict our daily lives."

There will be an opportunity for a Q&A and discussions with Jonathon Porritt CBE, co-founder of Forum for the Future, who is an eminent writer, broadcaster and commentator on sustainable development.

Established in 1996, Forum for the Future is now the UK's leading sustainable development charity. The Forum has a growing presence in the United States, India, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia.
