Save event

If you are interested in how climate change is affecting us, join Plymouth Arts Cinema as they host Cornwall Climate Care who will be introducing three short films which take a closer look at the impact locally and the wider global implications. The filmmakers will be on hand for a Q&A after the screenings.


The first film is Under The Surface (running time 30:55), looking at how climate change is impacting Cornwall's marine environment - and meeting the local people working to tackle it and find solutions.


The second film is Plenty More Fish? (running time 27:40), which follows a local fisherman as he explores how climate change is impacting Cornwall's fishing industry - and what we can all do to help.


The third film in the series, Living on the Edge, is presented by Emma Hazeldine, a passionate ultra runner. Emma travels around the Cornish coast path, witnessing the ever-increasing impacts of coastal erosion, and learning about how Cornwall's coastal communities are preparing for the future as sea levels rise. A few of the stories covered in Living on the Edge include:

  • The escalating cost of maintaining the Cornish coast path, which is hugely important to Cornwall’s economy, attracting 2.5 million visitors each year
  • A community’s efforts to save a much-loved historic building by moving it brick by brick 100m away from a cliff edge
  • Plans to protect the low-lying towns of Mounts Bay with 1.3 million tonnes of sand
  • One town’s victory in efforts to stop developments from being built on the edge of its crumbling cliffs.


The screening starts at 14:00. Visit the
Plymouth Arts Cinema web page to view the film trailer and to book tickets or email info@plymouthartscinema.org for any queries.

This event is supported by the Sustainable Earth Institute.
