Free Environmental Film Festival “Catching the Sun” February 9

“Catching the Sun” Feb 9
“Hometown Habitat” Mar 2
“Bag It” Apr 6

The Shorewood Conservation Committee is launching its second annual Environmental Film Festival in February with its first screening.  Join us for “Catching the Sun” on February 9 at 7 p.m. in the Village Center, 3920 N. Murray Ave.  Admission is FREE.  “Hometown Habitat” is being shown March 2 at 7 p.m. and “Bag It” is being shown April 6 at 7 p.m. Both are free also.

Shorewood is already going solar. The 2016 Solar Shorewood group-buy program with Milwaukee registered as the largest in Wisconsin to date.  But one of the biggest questions of our time is whether the U.S. will actually be able to build a clean energy  economy.

“Catching the Sun” follows the global race to lead the clean energy revolution. Solar jobs training programs like the one profiled in “Catching the Sun” can help show us the way to bridging environmental gains and economic opportunities, perhaps even for cities like ours.

This information is available through the Interfaith Earth Network.
