The Philadelphia debut of the newly released film “Catching the Sun” will address the prospect of a global solar energy transition with the potential to positively impact both income inequality and climate change. The film follows several lives, including unemployed workers seeking jobs in the solar industry; Van Jones, a leader in green jobs invited to work at the White House, but forced to resign by the far right; and a Chinese businessman building a solar village in Texas. Learn more by visiting www.catchingthesun.tv. The film will be followed by a discussion on local energy policies with speakers including Adam Agalloco, Energy Manager in the Philadelphia Office of Sustainability, and Saleem Chapman, Sustainable Business Network (SBN) Policy & Advocacy Manager.
Beer and snacks will be served.
