Join the Discussion of the Film Seaspiracy

February 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

 February 2 at 7pm. Online.

The UU Plant-Based Eating Club is hosting a Zoom discussion of the blockbuster documentary Seaspiracy, a groundbreaking Netflix documentary that exposes the fishing industry’s impact on marine wildlife and ecosystems, and which identifies actions consumers can take to preserve our oceans. When the film was released in 2021, it quickly rose to Netflix’s top 10 most popular films and TV shows in several countries. Seaspiracy was produced by Kip Anderson and directed by Ali Tabrizi, the same team behind the film Cowspiracy.

Please watch the movie on your own (or in small groups) and join one or both Zoom discussions on Saturday, January 28 at 7pm and Thursday, February 2 at 7pm. Please be sure to register for at least one session to get the Zoom link and an optional calendar invitation. If you would like to watch the movie with others, email [email protected] and you will be put in touch with other interested persons.

Register for the February 2 Discussion

 

About the UU Plant-Based Eating Club

The UU Plant-Based Eating Club is a group of around 40 people who desire to learn about and eat more nutritious and delicious meals together using plant-based whole foods. Members are primarily interested in learning how to prepare truly delicious, plant-based, healthy meals and sharing the joys of eating with others from our local UU community. We are all exploring the powerful ways food can sustain and improve the health and vitality of people and the planet. You are welcome to join us no matter what your dietary and religious practices are, as long as you are interested in supporting other group members in their pursuit of a whole food, plant-based lifestyle and are considering it for yourself whether in whole or in part. Non-UUs and non-vegans are welcome. For more information, visit the UU Plant Based Eating Club webpage.
