Penn State Berks Sustainability Team presents Groundswell Rising

Groundswell Rising: Protecting Our Children’s Air And Water, the new documentary from Emmy award-winning Resolution Pictures, captures the passion of people engaged in a “David and Goliath” confrontation. They stand together, challenging a system that promotes profit over health. We meet mothers, fathers, scientists, doctors, farmers, and people from all sides of the political spectrum taking a hard look at energy extraction techniques not proven to be safe. With the oil and gas industry’s expansion of fracking seen as a moral issue, this provocative documentary tracks a people’s movement, a groundswell rising towards reason and sensitivity, to protect life, today and tomorrow.

The Penn State Berks Sustainability Team, led by Mahsa Kazempour, associate professor of science education, has a variety of activities and events scheduled in April for the campus' first annual Sustainability Month celebration. These activities and events, planned and coordinated by various faculty, staff, and students, will focus on raising awareness and encouraging personal and community action.
