Movie Hour Returns

The Library Green Team is partnering with the Office of Sustainability to host our second “sustainable movie hour” of the year, and you’re invited! This time around we’re aiming higher, and inviting the entire UCSF community. We will be serving free lunch, and facilitating a post-movie discussion with campus energy experts.

The film is called Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution. Filmmaker James Redford (yep, Robert Redford’s son) 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 US.

We are offering two screenings, at Parnassus and Mission Bay, on consecutive days. Details are below. Please RSVP so we have an accurate head count when ordering food. Drinks will be provided BYOC-style (bring your own cup), so don’t forget to bring your water bottle or coffee mug!

  • Parnassus screening: Tuesday, October 23rd, 12-1:30pm in Health Sciences West (HSW) 300.

We’re marketing the event now, but would like to see more RSVPs. Please share the above link with your UCSF staff, faculty and student colleagues!

These outreach events are extremely important for many reasons. The UC goal of Carbon Neutrality by 2025 is approaching fast, and carbon offsets are not cheap (could be this much for some UCs). We are also trying to achieve Zero Waste by 2020. These are very important and challenging goals, and only achievable with your support. After the movie, we’ll have time for discussion and will provide opportunities for you to get involved!

Specials thanks goes to library staffers Kemi, Lisa, Kate and Sheila (CTCRE) who are working hard to plan the event. We hope to see you there!
