Santa Monica welcomes Thomas Linzey, who will be giving an inspiring talk to be filmed for a new project called We, the People, 2.0. To Linzey, “The environmental movement is a failure. Whether it’s climate change or the health of our oceans, air, and soil, the planet is worse off now than it was 40 years ago, and rapidly declining. Yet, corporations have more rights than our communities or ecosystems and are doing just fine. This is how we fix this situation.”

Tree Media is filming WE THE PEOPLE 2.0. The time is now for this film.
Leila Conners, who co-directed the critically acclaimed film, The Eleventh Hour, sets out to bring us the voice of Thomas Linzey, awakening us to the grandeur of what we can do to revitalize caring for our natural ecosystems and ourselves. Leila lets us know how momentous it is to be making We, the People, 2.0. She relates, “Having dealt with environmental issues now for over 15 years, I know that the work of Thomas Linzey is THE solution to endless environmental destruction. I’ve often wondered, as I know many of you have, why, if we all want clean air, water and soil and a healthy planet for our children, why can’t we make this happen? Why is it just getting worse? Thomas has the answer and also the solution. It’s across the board, it answers the 99%. That’s why we are making this film, because everyone needs to hear about this work.”
With our help through crowd-funding, the film can be made. Check in with Tree Media to help out!
