How can we as a community prepare for, and even celebrate, the changes which will come with the end of cheap energy?

A Convenient Truth, Dirt, & What's on Your Plate offered by GGEC and many co-sponsors.

March 24  A Convenient Truth. How the city planners of Curitiba, Brazil transformed their city over a 30 year span into a sustainable, thriving community, focusing on energy use, transportation, housing, recycling, and more.

April 7  Dirt. Tells the story of Earth's most valuable and under-appreciated resource, soil, from it's miraculous beginning to its crippling degradation. This film brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political importance of the soil.
