Former Labour leader and Doncaster North MP Ed Miliband is hosting a free screening of an award-winning climate change film this weekend.

Mr Miliband is inviting member sof the public to watch ‘This Changes Everything’ at Bentley Baptist Church in Askern Road, Bentley, on Saturday from 6.30pm.

It is open to anyone, and there is no need to book in advance.

The event has been organised by the former energy secretary in conjunction with the church to raise awareness of climate change.

Mr Miliband said: “Tackling climate change is one of the most important things politicians can do for the long-term future of our country and future generations.

“This film shows that the challenge is not just a global responsibility, it is an economic necessity.

“I’d invite anyone who has an interest in climate change issues, or those who want to learn more, to come along on Saturday evening, watch the film, and share their opinions with me and others.”

The film is inspired by Naomi Klein’s bestseller This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate.

It follows number of communities – from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands – which face climate change issues.
