The Green Film Screening brings a full house from
the local community

Since 2011, the Green Film Series has offered free monthly film screenings at the Michigan Tech from January through May. Films are selected in order to share relevant information, facilitate discussion, and enhance the capability of community members to make informed sustainable decisions. The Green Film Series not only provides a platform for local community awareness and activism, but it also connects our local community to the momentum, understanding, and the efforts of our larger global community.

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, will lead an informal discussion.
