NI Science Fest: The Oil Machine + Discussion

2:00 PM 25th February 2023 Ulster University Belfast

NI Science Festival 2023 & Ulster University Belfast present the expose documentary The Oil Machine (2022), followed by a panel discussion.

This event is part of SIREN23.

Does this year’s heat waves worry you? Have you had to choose between heating and eating this winter? And are 100 new licences for drilling in the North Sea the right answer to that?

Oil has been an invisible machine at the core of our economy and society. It now faces an uncertain future as activists and investors demand change.

Join us for a screening of ‘The Oil Machine’ followed by a discussion with climate activists Anna Kernahan and Dylan Hamilton, who features in the documentary.

Anna Kernahan is an 18-year-old climate activist and writer from Belfast, founder of Fridays for Future NI and Amnesty International Bravery Award winner.
