Pop up green events
across our city and beyond

This Oxford Green Week event has already happened. We look forward to seeing you in Oxford Green Week 2018.

Film screening – The City Dark

The City Dark is a documentary about light pollution and the disappearing night sky. Exploring the threat of killer asteroids in Hawai’i, tracking hatching turtles along the Florida coast, and rescuing injured birds on Chicago streets, the film unravels the myriad implications of a globe glittering with lights—including increased breast cancer rates from exposure to light at night, and a generation of children without a glimpse of the universe above. Featuring stunning astrophotography and a cast of eclectic scientists, philosophers, historians, and lighting designers, The City Dark is the definitive story of light pollution and the disappearing stars.

The film will be followed by a lively discussion around our own city and its relationship to the environment around it. How does Oxford shape our interactions with nature, and what is the future of the city, both locally and globally?
