Fri., Aug. 19, from 7 – 9 p.m., laugh and learn while watching Joylette Portlock in her hilarious YouTube series, Don’t Just Sit There – Do Something! Each short video features Portlock discussing a different piece of the climate change puzzle, integrating science, news and humor as she demonstrates easy actions viewers can take to combat environmental issues in their day-to-day lives. Portlock, who will lead conversation after the screening, is president of Communitopia, an organization dedicated to “making green mainstream.” After studying biology at MIT and receiving her Ph.D. from Stanford in 2006, she worked at The Climate Change Reality Project as well as PennFuture, resolving issues related to energy, air, water, mining and transportation.

Screenings for the Environmental Film Series will take place on the third Friday of every month from 7 – 9 p.m. in the Botany Hall Auditorium at Phipps. Attendance to these screenings is free with regular admission, but tickets are required; please pick up your free tickets in the Welcome Center starting at 5 p.m. on the day of the film.
