Coming Soon: "The Built to Last Picture Show"

Western Libraries and the Green Energy Fee Grant Program present a series of films about sustainability. Come join us for the first event on Earth Day, Monday April 22, 2013 at 6:00pm in Wilson Library Room 164 (The Library Presentation Room) featuring the award-winning film Bidder 70 about college student Tim DeChristopher, a brave leader in the climate justice movement. The film will be followed by a live webstream conversation with Tim, which will also be broadcast to numerous locations across the country at the same time.

The next two films will be shown on the subsequent two Monday evenings,  at 6:30 pm in WL 164, and will be followed by panel discussions featuring participation from various student club members. The films are: Dirty Business: “Clean Coal” and the Battle for Our Energy Future (on 4/29) and Tapped (on 5/6).  All film events are free and open to the public.

Other event sponsors include: the Office of Sustainability, Associated Students,, the Sierra Club, WWU's Anthropology Department, the Western Action Coalition, Students for Renewable Energy, and Students for Sustainable Water.
