“The Future of Energy” – our fabulous Sept movie

If you weren’t able to make it to our featured movie on Wed, Sept 23, don’t worry: you can rent it online https://vimeo.com/ondemand/futureofenergy

It’s a very vibrant, positive doco about renewable energy. The community-driven projects – especially one involving students, retraining long term unemployed people and home owners – were really interesting. There are also whole cities going 100% renewable (sometimes rebuilding after natural disasters) and showing the rest of the world it’s totally possible!

The Future of Energy: Lateral Power to the People (65) from Future of Energy on Vimeo.

The Future of Energy is a powerful documentary that captures the movement across the United States to transition to renewable energy and what everyday people are doing to help foster that shift. It’s a positive film about the renewable energy revolution, and a love story about the countless individuals and communities that are re-imagining their relationships with the planet and with each other.

Featuring:

Bill McKibben, Jamie Henn, Danny Kennedy, Jeremy Rifkin, Joanna Macy, Pandora Thomas, CA Governor Jerry Brown, Mark Jacobson, Mayors Bob Dixon and R. Rex Parris who have transitioned their cities to 100% renewable energy, and more.

Recycling (for the birds) – a valuable resource gets a second lease of life

These large aviaries were being donated to Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Sanctuary by the McFarlane Family. MiT was asked to help out and David, Ken & Jarrah stepped up to assist with the dismantling. With the wet & wild weather that unfolded, it was a pretty soggy experience but after a few hours it was DONE. Flat packed!! Just hope the cockies appreciate their new homes. Well done boys!
