EDMC - Environment and Development Movie Club / Coal Rush

Are you interested in environment & development and movies? EDMC have tried to combine it all.

About the movie, Coal Rush

The film takes place in West Virginia, and gives an insight in industrial fossil fuel contamination disasters and the affected people’s fight for clean water, truth and justice. Coal rush dramatices the human and societal costs a country faces when it relies on coal energy, and rings an alarm bell on the environmental hazards potentially affecting any of us - rural or urban. Following the film, a small discussion on fossil fuels and green and sustainable solutions will happen.

About EDMC

EDMC is a new initiative at the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, which seeks to nurture an intellectually stimulating and socially vibrant study environment through regular events with movie displays, debate and discussion.

The theme of the EDMC is the environment-development nexus, by which we mean how processes of economic development and growth affect environments and people across the globe in multiple and at times contradictory ways. Each movie screening will be accompanied by a debate and discussion led by faculty and/or invited guest discussants.
