MAASTRICHT, The Netherlands, March 9 /CNW/ - In a phenomenon never seen
before in the world, cinemas throughout the Netherlands are letting the public
view the film "An Inconvenient Truth" for free.
Showing the film for free in cinemas is the first initiative of a young
new foundation called the Planet Prosperity Foundation.
Six weeks ago the foundation made itself known and publicly set itself a
goal to show the film for free in 20 cities in the Netherlands. Not only for
one day, but for four weeks in a row, starting March 8th.
Indeed yesterday the project started in 17 major cities, including cities
like Rotterdam and The Hague. It immediately led to a run on the 50,000 free
tickets that are available in the coming weeks.
The last few weeks the foundation already gained the public support of
respected politicians and businesses while the media in the Netherlands gave
it constant attention.
By showing the film for free the Planet Prosperity Foundation hopes to
create more awareness among the general public about what is causing global
warming and what the consequences of this process will be for people, nature
and business alike in the near future if action is delayed.
Since the film is perceived by the public as an easy and understandable
way to get informed on the subject of global warming, the foundation hopes
that its initiative will be followed in other countries.
By creating more awareness, the Planet Prosperity Foundation wishes to
achieve that people will see that the inconvenient truth of global warming may
prove to be a convenient opportunity to transform and successfully innovate
