In a remote Norwegian town, just 1000 kilometers from the North Pole, politicians from around the world came to celebrate the opening of the world's first global seed bank. After years of difficult negotiations and searching for the right spot, this was deemed to be the safest place on earth. Eventually, 4.5 million seed samples will be stored in this "Doomsday Vault" and ensure the continued existence of biodiversity.
A discussion with Prof. Dr. Bernhard Gill, LMU Munich, will follow the screening.
The film will be shown in English with German subtitles.
Free and open to the public.
