This Earth Day, Rise Up & Care and the Global Media Fest (organized by the School of Modern Languages) bring to you a story of superheroes in Brazil who are contributing to SDG 11 by making their community liveable and more sustainable.

Many of us may relate to a circus with entertainment and some childhood memories.

But for some children in Brazil, it is something that has transformed their lives! Giving children and young adults direction, confidence, and a safe space to learn and grow in a community full of poverty and crime, Junior and Vinitius fought against all odds to set up "Crescer e Viver" in the heart of Rio de Janeiro. The Global Media Fest, Rise Up & Care and the Global Social Entrepreneurship VIP bring to you their inspiring story - Gira and the Circus of Life.

Watch a live screening of the movie and join us for a roundtable with Vinitius (founder of Crescer e Viver) and Dr. Kirk Bowman (founder of Rise Up & Care and professor at Georgia Tech) for a Q&A about the film and the themes brought up in the film.
