UPDATE: The No Impact Community Project

This week I watched the film ‘No Impact Man’.

The film, as noted on its website, is about “a family’s year-long experiment living a zero-waste lifestyle in New York City.”

A central idea of the film is that “deep-seated individual behavior change leads to both cultural change and political engagement.”

In looking into the film more, I found that it has an associated ‘No Impact Project’ website.

That website has a ‘Change the World’ section that suggests ways you can take action to address climate change and water concerns.

In the water section, it suggests, among other activities, to “gather your friends together to watch FLOW, Blue Gold or The Water Front – all powerful documentaries about the right to safe, affordable and accessible water.”

The website also notes that Food and Water Watch is a partner organization. Council of Canadians chairperson Maude Barlow is the chairperson of this US based organization.
