STATE COLLEGE Film: The True Cost

The Green Sanctuary Team of member congregation Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Centre County and our friends on the Green Committee of Foxdale Village Retirement Community have extended their very successful film-and-discussion collaboration into 2018!  Join them for free screenings and discussions of a variety of films.

January’s film, The True Cost is a documentary about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically.  Free and open to the public.

STATE COLLEGE – Hometown Habitat: Stories of Bringing Nature Home

Movie and discussion.
Find us downstairs in Harkins Hall.
Plenty of parking, wheelchair accessible.

Come enjoy learning how to transform your own yard, your local park, or congregational property into a haven for wildlife using native plant species.  We’ll watch a film about bringing nature back into these places and have a short discussion period after.  You’ll learn how to bring nature home and share our common space with the plants, the insects, the birds, and the mammals that support life on earth.

Film runs 90 minutes, and features examples of communities, congregations, and individuals who have changed their outdoor spaces to be more resilient and welcoming, including some houses of worship that have earned Sacred Grounds certification through the Audubon Society.

STATE COLLEGE: Film and discussion—Earth The Operators’ Manual

The Church of the Good Shepherd (Good Shepherd Catholic Church to most locals) is celebrating a Season of Creation from September 1-October 4 (the Feast of St. Francis) this year.  In the leadup to that season, their Living Laudato Si study group

welcomes everyone —community members and parishioners— to join them in the Parish Hall for a viewing of Episode 1 of Earth: The Operators’ Manual (54 min.), followed by a discussion with Ken Davis, member of Good Shepherd and a climate scientist at Penn State.  

The series is informative, watchable, hopeful, and even funny at times, and will give us lots to talk about.  Official description below the trailer.

 

Earth: The Operators’ Manual. An operator’s manual helps keep your car or computer running at peak performance. Earth science can do the same for the planet. Join host Richard Alley – PSU professor, registered Republican, geologist, former oil company employee and expert on climate change and renewable energy — on a high definition trip around the globe to learn the story of Earth’s climate history and our relationship with fossil fuels. In this documentary, a diverse cast of Earth “operators” are proving that when the Earth’s bounty meets human ingenuity, there are many reasons to be optimistic about our energy future.
