Zug, Switzerland - The EOG Association for Conservation is thrilled to be able to present the ‘stunning visual portrayal of Earth' in the film ‘HOME' by the award-winning French aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

This is one of the most incredible documentaries ever made. With breathtaking footage from 54 countries, HOME takes you on an aerial journey from the formation of the Earth, through to the world we live in today, showing how all the Earth's problems today are interlinked. Humanity, for all of its ingenuity, progress, discovery and intelligence, now faces one of the greatest crossroads in our history.

As the undisputed rulers of the planet, the film is a vivid reminder that we may fail in our duty as guardians of the most precious gift that we can leave for future generations – our HOME.

This showing of the film is free and will take place at the Snow, Ice and Rock Summit area in Hall A6. Monday 8th February at 16:30 – 18:00 (before the ispo get-together)

There will also be free drinks available during the film, which have been very kindly sponsored by Timex, one of the members of the Association. Herberto Calves, Vice President Marketing for Timex said ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for Timex to support the EOG Association for Conservation. Everyone is welcome – please bring as many colleagues as you can to enjoy the experience!'

Don't miss out on this inspirational film in English with German Subtitles.
