Featured Event Ideas

JOIN IN ON A LIVE WEBINAR
"Racial Justice in Solar" by the Sierra Club
  • This Solar Education Week, join us for a powerful webinar diving into a groundbreaking new study showing how racial inequality is holding back solar across the country and what we can all do about it.
    Tune in:  Wednesday, April 17, at 1pm PT / 2pm MT / 3pm CT / 4pm ET
Screen the film Paris to Pittsburgh!
"Paris to Pittsburgh" by RadicalMedia
  • From coastal cities to America’s heartland, Paris to Pittsburgh celebrates how Americans are demanding and developing real solutions in the face of climate change. And as the weather grows more deadly and destructive, they aren’t waiting on Washington to act.
Screen the new video from the ClimateMusic Project
"What do we want the future to sound like" and host a discussion afterward
  • Celebrate Solar Education Week with a video of an original musical performance that communicates the urgency of action on climate change. The composition combines climate science with the emotional power of music to inspire meaningful action. The video includes advanced data animations to provide context for the music and show how our climate has changed since 1800 and will evolve through 2150 (including temperature, CO2, and earth-energy balance).
    ClimateMusic audiences want to discuss the emotional impact of the video, as well as what can be done in response. Therefore, we will provide a “Discussion Guide” to be used by event facilitators. If you are interested, please contact The ClimateMusic Project directly at scrawford@climatemusic.org to receive the video and Discussion Guide.
Host a screening of Happening
"A Clean Energy Revolution" by The Redford Center
  • This new, 50-minute educational version of the award-winning HBO documentary film explores the dynamic mix of forces, individual voices, policies, innovations, market signals, and relationships that drive change in government, civil society, and business. Use the provided step by step educational guide to facilitate meaningful discussion and action at your screening.
    The Redford Center is making **100** screenings available on a complimentary basis as part of Solar Education Week (Screening License value of $295.00). To order your screening video and Discussion Guide, or for additional details about the film.
