Caribbean Community of Philadelphia present’s “1.5 Stay Alive: How Global Warming Affects the Caribbean”
Celebrate National Caribbean American Heritage Month at a special screening of 1.5 Stay Alive: How Global Warming Affects the Caribbean presented by the Caribbean Community of Philadelphia on Sunday, June 6.
The Caribbean region is very sensitive to many environmental changes, such as warming air and ocean surfaces, hotter days and nights, longer and more frequent droughts, heavy rainfall, and rising sea levels. As a result, food production, population health, marine, and terrestrial ecosystems, freshwater systems, energy systems, tourism, livelihoods of workers, and coastal infrastructures have been adversely impacted.
In 1.5 Stay Alive: How Global Warming Affects the Caribbean, Caribbean musicians and scientists call to address the effects of global warming. Watch the trailer.
The screening is free and open to the public. All ages.
The event is held in partnership with the United Nations Association of Greater Philadelphia.
Please Note: Construction for the exciting Delaware River Trail is happening along Columbus Boulevard. The project is making headway and will result in a stunning multi-use trail that will increase accessibility to the Waterfront. The trial is scheduled for completion in Fall 2021.
