Join the members of Clean Energy Action and Empower Our Future for two short (10-12 minute) inspiring films and a community discussion with film maker Kirsi Jansa.

The first film focuses on New York state and its Reforming the Energy Vision program, part of the state’s effort to get half of the state’s energy from clean sources by 2030.

The second film features Saerbeck, a German town of about 7,000 people that started its climate protection and adaptation work in 2009 and now produces 300% more renewable energy than it consumes.
