Finland is laying claim to the first carbon neutral ice hockey team in the world. Europe’s Green Capital of the year - the small Finnish city of Lahti – is the home of the Lahti Pelicans. The team proudly debuted their new Green City Jerseys during a recent fixture. They feature environmental commitments and stats in replacement of their regular player numbers. But their quest to become carbon neutral involves a lot more than just a wardrobe change. The team has already given up all air travel. And they’re encouraging their fans to travel to watch their games by public transport, bike or on foot. The club's home arena runs off only green energy. And all restaurants at the arena offer locally produced food and plastic-free packaging. Of course, the Lahti Pelicans aren't the only sportstars comitted to combatting climate change.

They were also the world's only vegan football club after making the switch to a plant-based diet for all players, staff and events. In 2020, World Athletics vowed to become carbon neutral by 2030.

It stars two-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand as Fern, a recently widowed factory worker whose small town in Nevada shuts down completely after the plant keeping the local economy afloat is shuttered. The film was shot at camps set up by actual nomads, who have increased in number during the Great Recession and traveled across the country in search of temp jobs. “Director and screenwriter Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland is a film that captures the triumph of the human spirit,” Festival chairman Harold Matzner said. “This extremely unique and well done film captures the grand landscapes of the American West as it follows Fern, played by Frances McDormand, who hits the road in her camper van moving from one real encampment of present day nomads to another. Nomadland is one of the most accomplished films of the year and we are delighted to honor our first female Director of the Year, Chloé Zhao!” “Nomadland” will premiere in theaters and on Hulu on Feb. 19 following a special IMAX engagement starting this Friday.
