Can we find animal tracks? We will read a story and participate in hands-on activities and maybe even share a warm cup of cocoa. Time will be spent both indoors and out, so come prepared.

All prices are per child and children must be accompanied by an adult with a maximum of 4 children per adult.

There will be no class the week of Thanksgiving.

Tuesday, Dec 1
This Changes Everything
Starts: Tuesday, Dec 1
Ends: Tuesday, Dec 1 - 8:30 pm
Location: AMC Loews Boston Common 19 & IMAX 175 Tremont St, Boston
Description: Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over
four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the
vast challenge of climate change. Directed by Avi Lewis, and inspired by
Naomi Klein's international non-fiction bestseller This Changes
Everything, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on
the front lines, from Montana's Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar
Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Throughout
the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that
we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our
failed economic system into something radically better.

Promoted by Grassroots International and co-hosted by Alternatives for
Community and Environment
