The Human Element: New Zealand Premiere

Climate Change & Business Conference: THE HUMAN ELEMENT MOVIE: New Zealand Premiere

Brought to you by Pure Advantage, the Climate Change & Business Conference is pleased to host the New Zealand Premiere of The Human Element. A riveting and visually rich documentary, telling stories of climate change impact with compassion and heart.

We are on the frontlines of climate change, a reality that is challenging us to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world. Human activities alter the basic constituents of life – earth, air, water, and fire – and these elements change human life in turn.

Featuring renowned environmental photographer James Balog of Chasing Ice fame, an award winning documentary previously supported by Pure Advantage, The Human Element explores the impact of climate change on everyday people, documenting stories of wildfires, cyclones, sea level rise, a struggling coal mining community, and our changing air supply.

You are invited to attend the New Zealand premiere screening including a Q&A from one of the movie’s producers, Kiwi-born Olivia Ahnemann.

When: Tuesday 9 October, 7.30pm - 9.30pm
Where: Grand Millennium Hotel (Climate Change & Business Conference venue), 71 Mayoral Drive, Auckland
To Book: Book your tickets on Eventbrite, tickets are free of charge but it’s essential you have a ticket to gain access to the event.



The premiere launches an online campaign at PureAdvantage.org/thehumanelement from Oct 9 @1930 through Oct 30th where you can view the movie and share your stories about climate change in New Zealand.

To help us spread the message, take a picture of how climate change affects you and send it in with a short explanation to myclimatestoryNZ@pureadvantage.org and we will post compelling images and stories to our Instagram page.

Gordon Campbell: On Why The Dice Are Loaded Against Women In Public Life

If they enter public life, women can expect a type of intense (and contradictory) scrutiny that is rarely applied to their male counterparts. If they are relatively young and conventionally attractive, such women will tend to be written off as lightweights – yet if they’re older and obviously competent, doubts will then tend to be raised about their “electability” and whether they are “warm” and “likeable” enough to connect with voters. Too conventionally feminine or not conventionally feminine enough? Too cold and too cerebral, or too warm and flighty to be seriously considered for high public office? For women in the public spotlight, the Goldilocks moments (when things are just right) are few and far between. More>>
