On Feb. 3rd and 4th, there will be free screenings of This Changes Everything. Cosponsors include Penn State's Sustainability Institute, Center for Global Studies, Sierra Club Moshannon, Rock Ethics Institute and the Center for Democratic Deliberation.
Filmed over 211 shooting days in nine countries and five continents, the film shows viewers how communities across the globe are tackling the challenge of climate change. From Montana's Powder River basin and the Alberta Tar Sands to the streets of Beijing and Greece, activists, scientists, and author Naomi Klein challenge us to reimagine and reinvent the economic system that has brought about disruptive climate change.
Following each screening, Penn State faculty from atmospheric sciences, communications, and more will participate in a panel discussion, including Rock affiliate faculty member Sarah Clark Miller, with questions taken from the audience. For more information, contact Peter Buckland.
