THE WISDOM TO SURVIVE accepts the consensus of scientists that climate change
has already arrived, and asks, what is keeping us from action? The film explores how
unlimited growth and greed are destroying the life support system of the planet, the
social fabric of the society, and the lives of billions of people.


Will we have the wisdom to survive? The film features thought leaders and activists in
the realms of science, economics and spirituality discussing how we can evolve and take
action in the face of climate disruption. They urge us to open ourselves to the beauty
that surrounds us and get to work on ensuring it thrives. Amongst those featured are
Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, Roger Payne, Richard Heinberg, Gus Speth, Stephanie
Kaza, Nikki Cooley and Ben Falk.
