In cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Movies that Matter organizes a film program on sustainability, called "Climate at Stake".
The objective is to draw attention to current sustainability issues, through a 'Movies that Matter-selection'. The program consists of three films, selected in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

After the film there will be a discussion with Bernice Notenboom, the director, about her vision on sustainable shipping.

The conversation is moderated by Froukje Jansen.

Bernice Notenboom is a professional adventurer, climate journalist and keynote speaker. In 2008 she became the first woman to reach the North, South, and Cold Pole (in Siberia) and traversing Greenland's icecap on skis in one year. In 2009 she reached the top of the Mount Everest. In the spring of 2014 she attempted to ski across the frozen Arctic Ocean from the North Pole to Canada but got evacuated 188 km short of the coast due to bad conditions.
