The documentary film 1.5 Degrees of Peace sheds light on the unexamined links between peace, disarmament, and climate justice. It will showcase how working towards climate justice is inseparable from striving to achieve global peace.

1.5 Degrees of Peace will be used as an educational tool, to inform audiences about the inseparable links between these two issues.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
