Green Film Series: The Island President

The Montclair office of Environmental Affairs and Community Green proudly present another free movie about environmental sustainability on Thursday, December 15, 6:30 p.m., at the Public Library, 50 So. Fullerton Avenue. All events at the Library are free.

“The Island President” tells the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, as he faces the literal survival of his country and everyone in it.As one of the most low-lying countries in the world, a sea level rise of just three feet would submerge the 1,200 islands of the Maldives enough to make them uninhabitable.

The documentary captures Nasheed’s first year of office, culminating in his trip to the Copenhagen Climate Summit and a rare glimpse of the political horse-trading that goes on at a top-level global assembly. As hope fades for a written accord to be signed, Nasheed — candid about revealing his strategies — makes a stirring speech which salvages the agreement. Despite the modest size of his country, President Nasheed has become one of the leading international voices urging action on climate change.

Please join us, and bring a friend, a family member, or your favorite fashionista for this entertaining and informative film screening, and an open public discussion afterwards. For further questions, please contact Environmental Affairs at 973-509-5721, or grussell@montclairnjusa.org.
