Movies on the Environment

Organize a movie night twice a year for your faith community. This intergenerational activity will bring a nice discussion afterward, particularly on how we bring about the Kingdom of God (Phil. 1:6).

Try to alternate between movies about the beauty of nature and those about environmental challenges.

This list is incomplete, but it might serve as inspiration. Don’t forget to obtain the rights for a public viewing.
