Preview: Geoversity helped to produce the documentary The Endangered Generation?
Geoversity is proud to share the trailer of The Endangered Generation? a feature documentary that we helped to produce with the award-winning Australian filmmaker Celeste Geer. It profiles a selection of remarkable people—all sharing their stories of extraordinary achievement in the fight for a livable planet Earth.
The narrative that threads this 80-minute film is the journey of Dr. Tamsin Woolley-Barker, the Dean of Geoversity’s School for Biocultural Leadership from our new conservancy and campus in the Anza-Borrego desert of southern California to Panama to join up with the young Guna woman and Geoversity designer who led 42 Guna women in the creation of the Bamboo Ark Mola Sail and brought it to COP26 in Glasgow last fall. Together, they make the trek from our Mamoní Valley Preserve over to the Guna Atlantic coast to meet up with the elders of Agar’s island community, one of the many in Gunayala imperiled by a rising sea.
As the story moves to the drama of COP26, you meet Juan Carlos Monterrey of Panama, whom Obama praised as the Obama Foundation Youth Leadership fellow who rose to become the youngest head of mission at COP26. We are pleased to say that Juan Carlos is now the Executive Director of GeoSchool.
