October Screening: Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution

Fri., Oct. 19 from 7 – 9 p.m., join us in Botany Hall Auditorium for a screening of Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution. Filmmaker James Redford embarks on a colorful personal journey into the dawn of the clean energy era as it creates jobs, turns profits and makes communities stronger and healthier across the United States. Unlikely entrepreneurs in communities from Georgetown, TX to Buffalo, NY reveal pioneering clean energy solutions while James’ discovery of how clean energy works, and what it means at a personal level, becomes the audiences’ discovery too. Reaching well beyond a great story of technology and innovation, Happening explores issues of human resilience, social justice, embracing the future and finding hope for our survival.

Following the film, join in on discussion led by staff from Conservation Consultants, Inc. (CCI). Founded in 1978 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, CCI's mission is to help families create healthier homes and get energy smarter. CCI achieves its mission through education and the identification of efficiency improvements that helps its customers save money by reducing utility bills, improve personal comfort, health and safety, increase awareness of the positive benefits to our economy and national security afforded by energy efficiency and renewable energy, and protect and preserve the environment by reducing the use of natural resources.
