1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Sheridan Opera House, Nugget and Masons Theaters
The Moving Mountains Symposium has traditionally focused on a single issue, and over the last four years Mountainfilm has looked at Energy (2007), Water (2008), Food (2009) and Extinction (2010). These issues come with challenges so grave that we decided we need to do more than talk: We need to take action. Thus, this year's theme: Awareness Into Action.
Our hope is that members of the formidable audience–once informed–roll up their sleeves and make an impact. In other words, if you know something, do something.
Mountainfilm's outstanding guests live and work on the frontlines of some of the fiercest battles being waged today for the future of our planet. After framing the problem with which they grapple, they will show us how we, the audience, can be part of the solution. We know you'll be moved by their stories, but hope that you'll take the next step and get involved in such a way that you never have been before.
In the morning at High Camp, we'll have speakers on our recent themes: energy, water, food and extinction. After a lunch break (which is 90 minutes, allowing you to get food in town using coupons that will be given to you at High Camp), we'll reconvene for compelling sessions—at the Sheridan Opera House, the Nugget and the Masons—that will certainly raise your awareness and, hopefully, move you to action.
(The symposium is included with some passes. Tickets will be for sale at the entrance or online for $65.)
