EDMC Movie Screening and Debate - Death by Design
Filmmaker Sue Williams investigates the underbelly of the electronics industry and reveals how even the smallest devices have deadly environmental and health costs. From the intensely secretive factories in China, to a ravaged New York community and the high tech corridors of Silicon Valley, the film tells a story of environmental degradation, of health tragedies, and the fast approaching tipping point between consumerism and sustainability.
The Environment and Development movie club (EDMC) is an initiative at the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen.
It seeks to nurture an intellectually stimulating and socially vibrant study environment through regular events with movie displays, debate and discussion.
The theme of the movie club 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.
Movie events will take place in auditoriums at the Faculty of Science, Frederiksberg Campus.
There will be snacks and drinks at each event.
All BSc and MSc students interested in Environment and Development, PhD students and faculty is welcome.
The EDMC is supported by the Department of Food and Resource Economics, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen and directed by a committee comprising two lecturers from that department as well as student representatives.
