Green films: Carbon Nation and Bag It!
Punahou School and Kanu Hawaii co-host a free, public screening of the 2010 documentary film, "Carbon Nation," exploring creative solutions to climate change at 6:30 this evening at the Luke Lecture Hall in the Wo International Center on campus.
The documentary movie is an entertaining primer about why it's smart to be a part of the new, low-carbon economy, while delving into climate change solutions. The film premiered at the Environmental Film Festival in Washington, DC in March last year.
The screening is part of Punahou's film-and-discussion series, "Food for Thought," in conjunction with the Student Global Leadership Institute.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on clean energy, including Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz; Bill Waring, president and owner of Sustainable Strategies LLC; and Emily McCarren, Punahou Academy Summer School Director.
Free campus parking is available at Punahou, 1601 Punahou St. (Enter the main gate at Punahou St. and Wilder Ave.). The movie screens from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.. Call 944-5871 for more information.
Also, if haven't seen "Bag It" yet, which is a film about plastic bags and their impact on oceans and our health, there will be a free screening 7 p.m. on Friday (July 29) at the Mid-Pacific Institute's Bakken Auditorium, 2445 Kaala St. The screening is sponsored by the Waimea Ocean Film Festival. Folks who arrive early will get free reusable bags from Whole Foods Maret.
