Can opposing perspectives find common ground to address climate change?
How can industry and environmentalists work hand in hand? And how can local economies find opportunity in a lower emissions future? OTHER SIDE OF THE HILL explores the impacts of a changing climate -- as seen through the eyes of local leaders on the ground who choose to work together to find innovative solutions. In a time of perceived cultural divide between rural and urban, left and right, young and old, we discover common ground in an urgency to address a changing landscape.
Join us on Saturday, July 24 from 3:00 to 3:30 pm, to watch the video, discussion to follow. Sponsored by and the Environmental Justice Task Force of Faith Action for Community Equity and Hawaii Interfaith Power and Light.
