Join Mark Dixon from Your Environmental Road Trip (YERT) for an event filled with environmental fun and film as he shares highlights from a year’s journey of weird, wild, and wonderful approaches to sustainability all across America. Ever try cutting down your garbage to 1/100th of its normal size? On the road? With a pregnant woman? Come on by to find out how they did just that and more.
YERT is a one-year 50-state video documentary road trip to explore and personalize sustainability across the country. All throughout the journey, Mark Dixon, Ben Evans, and Julie Evans released fast-paced videos online to share their adventures, including their very own “road rules” eco-challenges (like keeping all of their garbage in the car all year), visits to environmentally significant destinations, and most importantly, interviews with over 800 leaders, businesspeople, researchers, and average citizens from all walks of life. Now the team is working on “YERT Phase 2,” developing a feature film, additional short films, live presentations, and educational curriculum based on the project.
