Recap: Green Living Project Film Premiere
Our evening began with a short local spotlight story from Sam Ullery, the Schoolyard Garden Specialist for DC’s education office. I had no idea the DC school system had such a position, and it was great to see Sam’s passion to provide students in the area access to local, nutritious food.
Elisabeth Guilbaud-Cox from the UN Environment Program Regional Office for North America also joined the screening. She applauded the audience for attending because as our 7 billion-person world ever increases demand on resources, “we need to empower ourselves to bring about change”.
Green Living Project founder and chief storyteller Rob Holmes was our guide through the films of the evening, and shared how each film was made during our viewing. We ended with a preview of the latest films from Africa, and the footage looked stunning! I can’t wait to see them! Rob also shared that he is currently seeking projects to highlight for their upcoming trip to Asia, so contact Jenny at Green Living Project if you know of great stories to share. All in all it was an informative ininspirational event – and I even won a door prize!
