The Unitarian Universalists of Southern Delaware will screen "Ocean Frontiers III" at 7 p.m., Friday, July 6, at UUSD, located at 30486 Lewes-Georgetown Highway, Lewes. The public is invited to attend the free screening, which will be followed by a discussion of the film.
"Ocean Frontiers III" is a hopeful ocean film that chronicles efforts to plan for a healthy, safe and sustainable future. It explores the intersection of national security, maritime commerce, fishing and recreation, plus expanding industries such as offshore wind energy and aquaculture, coupled with scientific discovery. The film tells the story of how ocean planning helps manage and balance all the uses of the ocean to keep it thriving for generations to come. Viewers can savor rare underwater footage of stunning marine life along the coast from Virginia to Maine and hear from a range of people who are leading the way to a sustainable and thriving ocean.
Susan Goekler, chair of UUSD's Social and Environmental Justice Committee, said, "As Unitarian Universalists, our congregation is committed to environmental justice, and many in our church community are actively involved in this important work. Our hope is that environmental activists, as well as those who are curious but not yet engaged, will come together and after the film consider opportunities for involvement locally."
