Event ReportShowing of EVOLVE: Driving a Clean Future in Coal Country through Zoom. While we were hoping to get a larger viewing audience the people there both enjoyed it and participated (we had a panel discussion afterwards). Many liked it so much that they came to the virtual event held the next day. We even got some new members to join. Had viewers not only from KY and IN, but from California, Ohio, Louisiana and even France! It was a fun evening.
Showing of Evolve KY's hour-long award winning documentary, "EVOLVE: Driving a Clean Future in Coal Country" via Zoom. After the screening there will be a question and answer period with Ben Evans (film director) and select individuals featured in the film.
Can Kentucky drive America's clean transportation future? From the director of the award-winning documentaries YERT and NERVE comes a new film about the birth of a transportation and energy transformation...in coal country. Whether it's groundbreaking efforts by a local grassroots electric vehicle group or the installation of new solar farms on everything from reclaimed mountaintop removal mine sites to the roof of the Coal Mining Museum or the creation of "Silicon Holler" by major companies building and betting on cutting edge battery technology in Appalachia, the sun is starting to shine bright on our "Old Kentucky Home." With humor and heart, EVOLVE explores the inspiring stories of exceptional work by passionate people in a part of the world that just might hold the key to winning a clean future trifecta...for all of us.
We will email out the Zoom link information to all registered attendees before the event date.
