School Program: YERT: Your Environmental Road Trip
Director Ben Evans will be in attendance
Called to action by ever-increasing threats of planetary catastrophe, old friends Ben and Mark embark on a year-long environmental road trip to expose the problems we face and explore the solutions being created. Accompanied by Ben’s wife Julie, the trio head to every state in search of new and exciting initiatives to reverse the varied effects of climate change, all the while keeping their own carbon footprint to a minimum.
From earth ships in New Mexico to glass solar panelled roadways in Idaho, YERT manages to be funny and poignant; at the same time revealing that although the issues at hand may seem overwhelming, tenacity, creativity and human resolve can go a long way in making a difference.
