Unity College documentary film students created this film and debuted it at our recent Student Conference. It follows a crop of pumpkins from a corrections re-entry garden project, through a global climate action campaign, and to the local food pantry. There’s so much good learning in this project for our students — story telling, technical skill, outreach and professional development, project management, etc., etc.. What really impresses me, though, is the film’s demonstration of local responses to global challenges.
This connection of what we’re learning on our small campus to the broader social picture is exemplary of Unity’s approach to sustainability education. Unity’s a small school with a special focus in a seemingly out-of-the-way place; yet the real work of sustainability is happening in this community and our students are a part of it. Kudos to all the documentary film students and professor John Z. for telling the story so well.
