This Refugee Week join Hackney & Tower Hamlets Friends of the Earth for a screening of the multi award winning feature length documentary Climate Refugees.
Michael Nash investigates mass migration caused by our changing climate. Climate Refugees is the first feature film to explore in-depth the global human impact of climate change and its serious destabilizing effect on international politics. The film turns the distant concept of global warming into a concrete human problem with enormous worldwide consequences.
Doors at 7pm, film will start at 7.30pm followed by a discussion.

Come and join us at Shuffle Festival!
This is Shuffle in its own words:
SHUFFLE joins people together to create the kind of cities they want to live in. As an organisation, Shuffle works to build a more integrated community presence in the built and natural environment.
SHUFFLE FESTIVAL is an annual event in Mile End. The festival exhibits creativity through film, science, performance, architectural installations, walks, food, and music. We run on a small budget and use local talent and attract a majority local audience (over 70% with an E3 postcode). We have done this now for four years in the area, initially at the former workhouse and psychiatric hospital, St Clement’s, owned by the GLA, and at London’s most urban woodland, Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park (THCP) for the last three years. The park is managed by The Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park (www.fothcp.org) on behalf of the Landlord the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
