Intersections Virtual Film Series
A sustainable world is one of intersections—between sustainable development goals like gender equity and climate change and between fields that approach these issues from different directions, from engineering to sociology to visual arts. In 2020-2021, Penn State’s Sustainability Institute is offering a free series of films that invite us to engage at these intersections of sustainability.
Film Screening: An American Ascent
Wednesday, November 18 @ 7:00 pm (online)
Register to attend free film screening
Structural and overt racism affecting everything from the safety of people of color driving through unknown towns to reach parks to the availability of vacation time in certain jobs has created a legacy in which too many Americans have been excluded from or made unwelcome in the great outdoors.
In An American Ascent, we are offered an inspiring look at a small effort to start to address this legacy of exclusion by putting together the first all-African American team to try to summit Mt. Denali in Alaska. Read more about the film.
