Fall Sustainability Series

Free Wednesday screenings of documentaries on sustainability

Environmental Studies is thrilled to assume the oversight of the Sustainability Film Series working in partnership with the Athena Cinema, Alden Library and the College of Arts and Sciences Sustainability Studies Theme. Our vision and goals are those of years past: to offer attendees the opportunity to acquire a deeper understanding of the current issues and concepts related to sustainability and to explore challenges and solutions. 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.

Following each screening we invite audience members to join us for a panel discussion hosted by faculty members, students and regional community members. Please join us for a conversation following these beautiful, thought-provoking and timely films.
