Catching the Sun Movie

Seeking Economic Hope in the Solar Industry

FREE screening on May 20     

A must-see film. An eye-opening look at workers and entrepreneurs on the forefront of the clean energy movement that will transform, and enliven the way you see the future. What is clear is the wonderful opportunity the transition to clean energy represents. — Mark Ruffalo

Workers in Richmond California and entrepreneurs in Asia seek economic hope in the solar industry, as activists across the political spectrum, from Van Jones (Green for All) to Debbie Dooley (Conservatives for Energy Freedom) make the case that green energy is a benefit to all our communities.

Hosted by the Cascades Student Sustainability Initiative Club and 350 Deschutes.

Monday May 20th at 6pm in Tykeson Hall rm 111, OSU campus, 1500 SW Chandler Ave, Bend
