One Earth Film Festival- Inventing Tomorrow

Namaste Charter School will be hosting a FREE screening of the film, “Inventing Tomorrow” in collaboration with One Earth Film Festival on Thursday, March 7, 2019. The film follows the journeys of six young student scientists from around the globe as they tackle some of the most complex environmental issues facing humanity today – right in their own backyards.

Join us from 6:30 PM-8:30 PM to watch the film along with our community and engage in a panel discussion with some of Chicago’s community leaders advocating for environmental change and sustainability. Doors will be open at 5:30 PM. Light refreshments will be provided and free parking is available through the Razzmatazz lot on Pershing & Paulina, including street parking around Namaste. We look forward to seeing you there!
