Ben Kempas, Campaign Strategist with  Film & Campaign Ltd. has emailed

I'd like to invite everyone to the launch of our film and campaign. 

It'll be an opportunity for you to ask us anything – about the film and being part of its release, about further campaign ideas, about COP27, and about the economic crisis.

We'll have core team members and contributors on there. 

Emma Davie, director of The Oil Machine, talks about the aims in making the film and what its relevance in the current crisis is

Sir David King, former Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK Government, now Centre for Climate Repair and Climate Crisis Advisory Group, looks back at the year since COP26 in Glasgow and gives an outlook on COP27

Ann Pettifor, economist and author of The Case of The Green New Deal, analyses the current crisis from a critical economic perspective

James Marriott, Platform London, co-author of Crude Britannia and conceptual contributor to The Oil Machine

Rachel Caplan, outreach coordinator at Film & Campaign, highlights opportunities to see the The Oil Machine and for communities, organisations and businesses to host their own screenings and discussions

The event will be hosted by Noga Levy-Rapoport FRSA, a climate justice activist, organiser and speaker.

All along, we welcome your questions – about anything you’d like to ask our panellists, and about participating in the film’s release.  Simply post in the live chat during the event.  Rachel will monitor the chat and relay questions to the panel.

Register now and receive a reminder before the event goes live
