A letter festooned with stamps from Taiwan arrived at our offices last week, with a contribution from a group of mothers who had just screened "Hope in a Changing Climate" at a local school. The full story of this outpouring of support is told by Nicholas Chen, a new EEMP board member.
But it reminds me all of the power not just of the film, but of people working together to change our world. Beyond Copenhagen, beyond the ten transmissions on BBCWorld, and even beyond the more than 15,000 people who have viewed "Hope" on the internet, people in communities across the globe have been brought together around this film. Using our Discussion Guide, invitation templates, and a set of carefully crafted supporting materials more than 64 organizations in 28 nations have engaged diverse stakeholders in film screenings and facilitated discussions.
