Ever-increasing greenhouse gas emissions, extensive fires from the Amazon rainforests to Siberia and Indonesia, melting glaciers, floods and droughts, rising sea levels and ocean acidification, pollution, endangered species, growing world population, famine, industrialized food systems, the relationship between deforestation and red meat consumption, malnutrition, depletion of natural resources, climate injustice, climate refugees… Humanity’s impact on the earth has been pushing the world into the “Human Epoch” Anthropocene, ending the current 12,000-year-old Holocene epoch. As declared by scientists, enviromental activists, and millions of people who joined in the Global Climate Strike, actions taken in the next few years will determine the new few thousand of years.

As part of SALT’s Is this our last chance? program, that is now in its fifth year, five documentaries will be shown at Goethe-Institut Ankara between December 18-20. Aiming to call attention to urgencies and responsibilities as well as individual and global impacts on the environment, the program is open to all and free.

All films are subtitled. For further information:

In September 2015, SALT announced that it will not accept support from oil, coal, or gas corporate entities.
