The event has passed.

Dumfries & Galloway Woodlands, the D&G Climate Hub and the Glenkens Community & Arts Trust are working together to host a screening of the brand new feature-length documentary, ‘Why Not Scotland?’ on 6th June at The CatStrand in New Galloway. As we stand at a vital crossroads in the future of our land and seas, ‘Why Not Scotland?’ explores the Scottish landscape through the eyes of Flo, a young Scot from Glasgow. Seeing the depleted state of nature across her own country, Flo feels dispirited and, like many of her generation, increasingly fearful about an uncertain future. However, on a journey around Europe, Flo encounters a different story, finding places where nature is making a dramatic comeback, revitalising human communities.

Encouraged by these stories of hope and renewal, she is prompted to wonder: if this is possible elsewhere, then why not Scotland? Watch the Why Not Scotland? trailer here:

This film has is being shown in a range of venues around Scotland, giving a new perspective and highlighting that we cannot respond to the climate crisis without addressing the biodiversity emergency.
