Science Movie Night: Wall-E
Approximately seven hundred years in the future, the Earth is over-run with garbage and devoid of plant and animal life, the consequence of years of environmental degradation and thoughtless consumerism. The surviving humans are living on the spaceship Axiom after vacating Earth centuries earlier. The original plan was for humans to live in outer space for 5 years while cleaning robots, "WALL-Es" prepared Earth for re-colonization. However, after seven hundred years, only one WALL-E remains.
After the film, join Stephen Goldsmith is a craftsman, sculptor, and founder of Artspace, a non-profit organization that saved old buildings from demolition and developed affordable live/work space, childcare and educational facilities, and incubator space for non-profit agencies in Salt Lake City. He will speak to the notion of “cradle-to-cradle” thinking and this unique approach to environmental protection.
