The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County, the MCC Sustainability Center and the McHenry Co. Chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby are co-sponsoring the showing of Happening, A Clean Energy Revolution, on Thursday, October 18 at MCC Conference Center at 7:00pm. Doors open at 6:30pm.
Filmmaker James Redford embarks on a colorful personal journey into the dawn of the clean energy era as it creates jobs, turns profits, and makes communities stronger and healthier across the US. Unlikely entrepreneurs in communities from Georgetown, TX to Buffalo, NY reveal pioneering clean energy solutions while James’ discovery of how clean energy works, and what it means at a personal level, becomes the audiences’ discovery too. Reaching well beyond a great story of technology and innovation, “Happening” explores issues of human resilience, social justice, embracing the future, and finding hope for our survival. https://happeningthemovie.com/
