University Libraries Virtual Fall 2020 Sustainability Series

2020 Sustainability Film Series poster

University Libraries, the Athena Cinema and Environmental Studies Program present the 8th annual Sustainability Film Series. For the first time ever, the series will be presented virtually.

In keeping with all previous series, each film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring faculty members, students, community members and some surprise visits from the filmmakers.  All films are FREE and open to the public.

We are also pleased to announce that we have two new partners, the Office of Sustainability and the Center for Campus and Community Engagement.  This partnership makes it possible for us to offer this series throughout 2020-2021 and beyond and represents their commitment to our mission. 

The fall screenings highlight films that explore diverse topics with the central theme of racial and social justice. We choose films that engage and challenge the audience to integrate the information from these stories into their everyday life, as well as delve into solutions. Through the series we aim to bring together students, faculty and regional community members. The program recognizes the strength of this integration, coming together and learning from each other.

First up is Condor and the Eagle, an award winning documentary about four Indigenous leaders who embark on an extraordinary trans-continental adventure from the Canadian plains to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle to unite the peoples of North and South America and deepen the meaning of "Climate Justice".

To participate, please register for each event (click film title for registration form). An email will be delivered to you when the film becomes available to stream, containing a link to watch and a link to the Zoom discussion. All Zoom discussions will take place on Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m.

Registrants will have access to films in advance, though we recommend viewing the films on the day of the panel discussion.

Please follow us on Facebook for updates!
