The UofL Sustainability Council and the Sustainability Living-Learning Community invite you to join us for dinner and a screening of the hilarious and moving film YERT - Your Environmental Road Trip, starring and directed by local filmmaker and sustainability activist, Ben Evans.

50 States. 1 Year. Zero Garbage? Called to action by a planet in peril, three friends hit the road - traveling with hope, humor, and all of their garbage - to explore every state in America (the good, the bad...and the weird) in search of the extraordinary innovators and citizens who are tackling humanity's greatest environmental crises. As the YERT team layers outlandish eco-challenges onto their year-long quest, an unexpected turn of events pushes them to the brink in this award-winning docu-comedy. Featuring Bill McKibben, Wes Jackson, Will Allen, Janine Benyus, Joel Salatin, David Orr, and others.
