“Earth4All and the world of the Pope”: documentary premiere 

Broadcaster Sky Italia is holding the premiere of a documentary spotlighting Earth4All and Pope Francis on the 28th of November 2023 in Rome.

The movie retraces the meeting of influential women environmental activists—Ineza Umuhoza Grace, Licypriya Kangujam, Maya Gabeira, and Sophia Kianni—and Earth for All co-authors—Sandrine Dixson-Declève and Per Espen Stoknes —with Pope Francis on World Environment Day in June 2023.  

Together, they presented Earth for All: A Survival Guide for Humanity, the 2022 report to the Club of Rome, to Pope Francis in the Vatican and discussed humanity’s responsibility to step up to the challenge to safeguard our planet. That evening, the group reconvened at Rome’s Colosseum, transformed into the stage of Repubblica’s Green&Blue festival. There, inspiring speeches by the activists, Earth for All co-authors, including scientist Johan Rockström, echoed the urgent call for action to address current environmental crises.

Capturing this monumental event, a documentary by Sky and GEDI, directed by Daniele Moretti and Riccardo Luna, aims to reveal the convergence of scientific evidence, the activists’ objectives, and the Pope’s vision—driving towards a unique goal: to awaken global consciousness and urge governments to take bold action for a just ecological transition. 

The upcoming private screening will be held with the Italian Ministry of Environment & Energy Security, Gilberto Pichetto Fratin. 

Following the premiere, the documentary will air on SKYTG24 on November 29 at 21:00 CET and Sky NATURE at 22:00 CET.
