The Fall 2022 Sustainability Film Series is underway. First up starting September 7, “Revolution Generation”, an exploration of the world-changing activism and potential of the largest youth generation in history.  I'm excited to be working more closely with our sponsors this fall.  The Revolution will include a post-show discussion led by Mary Nally, Director, Center for Campus and Community Engagement (CCCE). The center is especially focused on Media Literacy, Civic Engagement, Voting – this film speaks to all these issues. Note: University Libraries have the streaming version of this film, it’s worth watching.
