https://www.patagonia.com/new-localism/takayna.html
Tarkine in northwestern Tasmania is home to one of the last undisturbed tracts of Gondwanan rainforest in the world, and one of the highest concentrations of Aboriginal archaeology in the hemisphere. Yet this place, which remains largely as it was when dinosaurs roamed the planet, is currently at the mercy of destructive extraction industries, including logging and mining. Weaving together the conflicting narratives of activists, locals and Aboriginal communities, and told through the experiences of a trail running doctor and a relentless environmentalist, this documentary, presented by Patagonia Films, unpacks the complexities of modern conservation and challenges us to consider the importance of our last truly wild places.

https://www.croptrust.org/our-work/svalbard-global-seed-vault/
The Seed Vault has the capacity to store 4.5 million varieties of crops. Each variety will contain on average 500 seeds, so a maximum of 2.5 billion seeds may be stored in the Vault.

Currently, the Vault holds more than 980,000 samples, originating from almost every country in the world. Ranging from unique varieties of major African and Asian food staples such as maize, rice, wheat, cowpea, and sorghum to European and South American varieties of eggplant, lettuce, barley, and potato. In fact, the Vault already holds the most diverse collection of food crop seeds in the world.

The focus of the Vault is to safeguard as much of the world’s unique crop genetic material as possible, while also avoiding unnecessary duplication. It will take some years to assemble because some genebanks need to multiply stocks of seed first, and other seeds need regenerating before they can be shipped to Svalbard.

Das 9. Filme für die Erde Festival
Am 20. September 2019 findet das 9. Filme für die Erde Festival statt. An diesem Tag zeigen wir die besten Nachhaltigkeitsfilme des Jahres – in 20 Städten in der Schweiz, in Deutschland und in Liechtenstein. Der Eintritt ist kostenlos (freiwillige Kollekte, mit Ausnahme des Lunchkinos).

Für jung und alt, für Nachhaltigkeitsneulinge und Umweltexpert*innen: Die Festivalfilme halten dem Status Quo inspirierende Lösungen entgegen, geben Impulse für konkrete Veränderungen – und vor allem lassen sie die Festivalbesucher*innen mit Handlungsmöglichkeiten und Tatendrang zurück.

Ausserdem erwarten die Besucher*innen Ausstellungen von lokalen Vereinen und am Abend eine Podiumsdiskussion. Vor dem Hauptfilm moderiert Mitja Rietbrock (Reporter, Redaktionsleiter "Mitenand", SRF) ein Podium zum Thema "Vom Rückgang der Arten zur Rückkehr der Grosswildtiere" mit Alexandra-Maria Klein (Professorin für Naturschutz, und Landschaftsökologie, Universität Freiburg (D), Andreas Moser (Biologe, Tierfilmer und Leiter NETZ Natur, SRF) und Reinhard Schnidrig (Leiter Sektion Wildtiere und Waldbiodiversität, BAFU). Das Podium wird per Livestream in alle Festivalorte übertragen. Abgerundet wird das Abendprogramm mit einem Bio-Apéro. Rund 16’000 Besucher*innen kommen am Festivaltag zusammen.
