The Green Film Festival 2020 is due to take place in 80 cities in both France and Switzerland and is coming to Nyon from the 11th -15th March.
This 15th edition of the festival has an exciting programme of documentary screenings and events, presentations and debates on climate change, health, environment, sustainable development and zero waste workshops.
There will also be a film on fungi screened in English at 18:30 on Saturday 14th March.
The film, “The Kingdom: How Fungi Made Our World”, has been praised for both its beauty and scientific interest. The film is the story of how fungi made life on land possible. By looking at fungi in the context of evolution and natural history, scientists are making discoveries that will change lives.
