On the occasion of the World Environment Day 2022, the British Embassy in Turkmenistan, in collaboration with the International University for Humanities and Development, hosted the screening of Sir David Attenborough’s “Life on Our Planet” film for the students in Ashgabat.
Sir David Attenborough is one of the world’s most famous broadcasters and naturalists. During his lifetime, Sir David Attenborough has seen first-hand the monumental scale of environmental change caused by human actions. Honest, revealing and urgent, this documentary film is Sir David’s witness statement for the natural world. He offers a powerful first-hand account of humanity’s impact on nature and a message of hope for future generations. This amazing documentary presents some pretty grim predictions for the future should humanity continue on its current path, including a sixth mass extinction and a 4°C global temperature rise that will render large parts of the Earth uninhabitable.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to each person here for joining us today. Today we have a crucial opportunity to come together and put nature at the heart of everything we do. Today is a great chance for us to step into a new way of thinking – to encourage our friends, families and wider community to take action and build a better future where we can live in balance with our natural world, and I hope that today after watching this amazing film you leave feeling inspired to act!” Ambassador Wilde said.
