Eco Film Night
Robert Bourke

We hope that your February is off to a good start.

Following the success of our first Eco Film Night last November, we are delighted to announce that we are hosting a new screening from 7-9pm on Friday 18th February.

In collaboration with Eco Hun founder and Act Now Collective member, Rachel Loughrey, we will be screening a recently made Irish film entitled Bog Standard. This is an insightful documentary about the critical topic of bogs and the impact they have on mitigating climate change.

The event will start at 7pm in the cosy space above the health food shop, The Art of Eating, in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin.

The film will be introduced by the makers, along with with a photographic display on bogs. After the film, there will be a short panel discussion with guests so we can all learn together about the importance of our wetlands. There will be time for chats after the film, where we can discuss the film and get to know each other better. We may even continue the conversation in the local pub, for those who would like to join!

Film description:

Bog Standard, the short documentary film focuses on community-led bog restoration projects and the custodians who have extraordinary stories to tell. The film draws on the commitment and hope of grassroot projects happening around peatland conservation in Ireland.

Our objective is that these conversations will inspire and educate our future decision-makers and the wider community about the importance of preserving Ireland’s rich bog heritage.

Bog Standard, born within the An Taisce Climate Ambassador Programme 2021 responds to the need for awareness of peatlands in Ireland and their central role within the climate emergency.

If you missed our last film night, at which we screened Closing the Loop, you can watch it here.

We hope you can make it on 18th!
