The Sustainability Film Series brings a full house from
campus and the local community.

The Sustainability Film Series: Issues & Dialogue (formerly Green Film Series) has offered free monthly film screenings at Michigan Tech from January through May, each year since 2011. Films are selected with the goal of sharing relevant information, facilitating discussion, and enhancing the capability of campus and community members to make informed sustainable decisions. The Film Series not only provides a platform for promoting greater community awareness, understanding, and activism, but it also connects our local community to the momentum and efforts of the larger global community.

The Film Series focuses on a range of topics related to social, economic, and environmental sustainability--water, energy, climate change, agriculture, food, waste, economics, transportation, indigenous peoples, and more. A facilitator knowledgeable on the topic, leads an informal discussion with participants.

Community members enjoy refreshments and

The films were purchased by the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative with grant funding from several sources, and may be used for educational purposes at no charge. Films are available for a 2-week checkout for classroom, meetings, or home viewings. To borrow films visit the Western U.P. STEM Resource Clearinghouse Webpage.


The film series is coordinated by the Michigan Tech Center for Science & Environmental Outreach.

Films are selected by our cosponsors. Many thanks to our Cosponsors:
