The Human Element-Screening

Virtual screening of the film "The Human Element" with a discussion to follow the film, which will feature Dr. Paul Sletten, a family physician and leader of the Waupaca chapter of Citizen's Climate Lobby.  Dr. Sletten will help viewers discuss the connection between climate change and public health.  The documentary illuminates, in visually stunning ways, multiple adverse effects of our changing climate already in motion.  In this year of the COVID-19 pandemic, learning how climate change magnifies respiratory diseases is both heartbreaking and timely.

Registration is open now to secure your free “ticket” to watch this engaging film by James Balog (“Chasing Ice”) and collaborators.  “The Human Element” can be seen only by invitation, and the Appleton-Fox Cities chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby, through our national affiliate Citizens’ Climate Education, has received permission to show this 80’ documentary.
