Green Film Series to present films on production, consumption patterns vs. sustainable economy May 21

HOUGHTON -- The Green Film Series at Michigan Tech will present three short films, produced between 2007 and 2013, that explore our production and consumption patterns, the policies and business practices behind them, and how we can move our economy in a more sustainable direction, starting with orienting ourselves toward a new goal.

The films -- Story of Stuff, Story of Change, and Story of Solutions -- will be shown at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 21, in Fisher 135 on the Michigan Tech campus. (Please note the change of location.)

A discussion until 9 p.m. will follow the 60 minutes of films, with facilitators Christa Walck, Michigan Tech associate provost, and Rick Loduha, co-director of the Sustainable Keweenaw Resource Center in the Finlandia University Jutila Center for Global Design and Business.

Entry is FREE. A $3 donation is suggested. Enjoy refreshments provided by the Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

The Green Film Series is co-sponsored by Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative, Michigan Tech Center for Water and Society, Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Keweenaw Land Trust and Michigan Tech Film Board.
