Global Solutions, Local Connections: Making the Global Local One Activist at a Time

On the evening of Friday, November 4th, from 7:30 to 10:30, Citizens for Global Solutions will hold its first film festival at the Lensic, Santa Fe's newly renovated performing arts center. Short films covering topics on energy, the environment, global health and civil conflict will be shown and discussed. Local and national poets will also share their relevant work. Individual admission is $20. Students are admitted for $10.

The film festival is part of a larger conference, Global Solutions, Local Connections: Making the Global Local One Activist at a Time, and will feature Gov. Bill Richardson, Author Salons, local and national artists and activists, and much, much more! The conference will seek to raise awareness about global problems that have local impacts, while communicating to people how they can take action in their own communities to alleviate some of these problems.

Never before in the history of our world have so many global problems desperately needed our attention – and you need to be part of the solution. Join us in this rare opportunity to meet and learn from high-caliber experts and activists working hard to solve some of the world’s most vexing problems.

Join us to learn how global issues have local impacts. Learn how you can raise awareness in your own community. Learn how you can take action. And have fun doing it! Come and make this a weekend to remember!
