OffShore Documentary Screening

In partnership with Plateform Offshore join us on Monday the 12th of June 18:00-20:30 for an independent documentary screening about what the coming energy transition means for workers and communities around the UK North Sea.

We’re in a cost of living crisis. This is not the time for governments to prop up the oil and gas industry. It’s time to shift to renewables, providing job security and the means to heat our homes for all – not just the 1%.

Offshore brings together varying perspectives on working in offshore oil and gas and renewable energy.

The film looks at how communities and regions have been impacted by past industrial decline, the risks workers face in an increasingly precarious industry and how they can organise for the future.

The film centres workers’ voices because a Just Transition means listening to, and being led by, those most impacted by industrial change.

The climate crisis means we must rethink our energy systems: where we get energy from, how it’s produced and who benefits from it. Workforces and communities all over the UK will be impacted by the energy transition and have the potential to benefit from more publicly owned, local and renewable energy.

Arrivals from 18:00. The film screening will start promptly at 18:30 and will be followed by time for discussion and food.
