Green Films bring a full house from the local community,

Since 2011, the Green Film Series has offered free monthly film screenings at Michigan Tech from January through May each year. Films are selected that will share relevant information, promote discussion, and enhance the capability of community members to make informed and sustainable decisions. The Green Film Series not only provides a platform for local community awareness and engagement, but it also connects the local community to broader regional, national and global efforts.

The Green Film Series focuses on a range of significant topics concerning the environment--water, energy, climate change-- and many social and community topics--economics, under-represented voices, sustainable food production, and more. Following each film, a facilitator knowledgeable on that topic, leads an informal discussion.

Visit the LSSI Events Page to view this year’s film schedule and for more information.

These films were purchased by the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative with grant funding from several sources, a donation from the KUUF Green Sanctuary Committee, and the Keweenaw Coop Bring a Bag campaign. Films may be used for educational purposes at no charge. Past Green Films are available for a 2-week checkout for classrooms, meetings, or home viewings. To borrow films visit the Western U.P. STEM Resource Clearinghouse Webpage and look for the link to the Green Films.

The Green Film Series is cosponsored by Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative, Michigan Tech Great Lakes Research Center, Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Keweenaw Land Trust, and Sustainable Futures Initiative, and coordinated by the Michigan Tech Center for Science & Environmental Outreach.
