Building a Bridge to a Renewable Energy Future
Join filmmaker Kirsi Jansa and local experts in energy and sustainability for the premiere screening of the new Sustainability Pioneers documentary series, followed by "Bridging to a Fossil-Free Future" by Rachel Carson scholar and energy consultant Patricia DeMarco.
October is a national energy awareness month and therefore a great time to launch Sustainability Pioneers, a brand new southwestern Pennsylvania-based series of short documentaries on the transition to sustainable energy future. Sustainability Pioneers is in a way a continuation of Gas Rush Stories - it seeks to widen the way we think about energy in SW PA. The series explores the what kind of challenges we have when building the bridge to renewable energy future, and how those challenges could be overcome.
7-9 p.m. at Carnegie Mellon University's Mellon Institute Auditorium; free and open to the public. You can learn more and view a trailer here.
