Sustainability + Soup: Happening, A Clean Energy Revolution

Sustainability + Soup: a film series

Join WonderArts VT and the Craftsbury Outdoor Center for a special film series about climate change with a focus on food, energy and waste. Shifting away from the traditional doom and gloom narrative, these films highlight actionable steps through personal journeys towards a more sustainable future. Come early to enjoy a bowl of soup, and stick around after the film for a casual conversation led by the Craftsbury Energy Committee.

Happening: a clean energy revolution

The clean energy revolution is quietly underway. Electricity generated from wind and solar is increasingly more affordable than electricity generated from fossil fuels, and the growth curve for the generation and storage of renewable energy now resembles the exponential curves seen with the advent of radio, TV, and the internet. But can we meet all of our our energy needs with renewable energy? How would we do that? And, most importantly, will we do that?

Suggested Donation: $5
