Join the Sustainability Institute at Penn State for its spring 2023 lineup of the Intersections film series, integrating stories of community resilience in the face of sustainability challenges around the theme of “Building Better Bonds.”
On March 22 at 7 p.m., we will be screening online A River Reborn and two other short films about watershed protection and restoration. Managing our water supply is one of the most critical sustainability challenges facing the globe and Pennsylvania, and too often, the stories we hear are ones of gloom and doom. But in these uplifting films, we see hope for positive change in cleaning up rivers affected by acid mine drainage and other pollutants and bringing communities together to reimagine our relationship with water. Featuring a post-film discussion moderated by the Penn State Water Council featuring experts from across Penn State discussing the management of our waterways and how to take advantage of major opportunities to fund new infrastructure projects.
All films in the series are free and open to all students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members. All events will be streamed online to allow participation from all Penn State campuses, neighboring communities, and alumni. Pre-registration for all events is required and can be completed at the Intersections website.
Post-film discussions focus on finding solutions to problems and connecting Penn Staters to resources and opportunities to get involved on and off campus.
