For Earth Month, Netflix released a new collection of nearly 200 films, specials, series, and sorts about the environment and climate change to bring attention to the state of our planet.
Don’t Look Up is the second most-watched English language film of all time. Don’t Look Up follows two astronomers trying to get humans to care about the massive comet that will destroy planet Earth, which is a metaphor for climate change.
Now, Netflix created an entire community for users to immerse themselves in topics of climate emergencies. The One World, Infinite Wonder, Netflix’s Earth Month collection, features 170 films, specials, series, and shorts that address environmental issues and climate change.
Dr. Emma Stewart, Netflix’s Chief Sustainability Office, wrote in a blog post, “This Earth Month, let us entertain you with stories about our planet and its heroes — with everything from cooking shows to dramas, stand-up comedy specials to family titles, to nature documentaries and climate fiction.”
The collection includes series, films, and specials like Our Planet, Animal, David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet, and the new five-part series Our Great National Parks narrated by President Barack Obama.
However, the collection will include films other than documentaries. Netflix points out that the success of Don’t Look Up shows how entertaining stories about the environment can be. The collection also includes how to live more sustainably with The Minimalists: Less is Now, Down to Earth with Zac Efron, and Best Leftovers Ever! You can also learn more about the science with Breaking Boundaries and Bill Nye the Science Guy.
The collection aims to show how fragile our planet is and how we can help to curb climate change before it’s too late. To view this collection, search “One World Infinite Wonder” or “Earth Stories,” or go to netflix.com/earthstories or netflix.com/earthmonth.
