Sustainability Film Series

April 5, 2017

The Institute on the Environment, Bell Museum of Natural History, University Services Office of Sustainability, and University Dining Services host the free Sustainability Film Series the first Thursday evening of the month from February to May. Films are selected to reflect issues that resonate with University students, faculty and staff.

Each film is presented with a panel of experts who provide local, professional and personal insight into the issues addressed in the films in dialogue with the audience and related sustainability campus student groups. The goal is also for viewers to leave more informed, inspired and equipped with concrete actions to take in their lives and communities. Sustainably sourced food or snacks are served before each film.
