Sep 8: Sustainability Pioneers at FEC

Enjoy beer or wine and insightful fun with fellow nature lovers at one of the greenest
buildings on earth - and watch the 10th and final episode of the Sustainability Pioneers series.
The short documentary Sustainability Pioneers: Finding Our Power follows how the Frick Environmental Center rose from the ashes, and how the City of Pittsburgh takes the high road after president Trump reneges on the Paris climate treaty.  We meet Bill Peduto, the mayor of Pittsburgh, and RenĂ©e Lertzman, climate, energy and climate change consultant and engagement strategist, for their insights on to help people move from climate melancholia to climate action.

A community conversation, facilitated by the filmmaker Kirsi Jansa, will follow after the screening. Then drink, mingle, learn, and enjoy live music outdoors (or in a covered space, if raining) during this 21+ event.  

6:30-9 p.m. at the Frick Environmental Center.
