About this day

In association with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we present Climate at Stake on Sunday the 25th of March: three movies concerning the effects climate change has on living conditions for people worldwide. The day will officially be opened by the festival’s guest of honour, Kumi Naidoo, former director of Greenpeace. We will screen the movies Anote’s Ark, Guardians of the Earth and Thank you for the Rain, followed by Q&A’s with the movies’ directors and different experts on relevant topics.

A habitable planet means welfare for poor and rich, for men and women and for present and future generations. That is why the Ministry of Foreign Affairs commits itself to providing access to and sustainable usage of natural resources, for everyone. The Netherlands collaborates with different governments, multilateral institutions, NGO’s, companies and civilians to secure the provision of public goods such as raw materials, water and energy for the future. The most important guidelines in doing so are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), globally determined goals for sustainable development.
