At Mountainfilm, we believe that climate change is the most critical issue of our time. We also believe in grassroots movements and have spent nearly four decades sharing and celebrating their powerful stories.
This is The New Normal, and we invite you to help shape it. Toward this end, we encourage you to take action on our five key initiatives. Commit to taking these, and we'll celebrate you at this year's festival.Read books, listen to podcasts or watch films about the latest science and the most innovative solutions surrounding climate change. Calculate your carbon footprint, and identify areas of emissions you could improve in your life.
Reduce your overall energy use with measures like carpooling, unplugging your appliances, adjusting your thermostat carefully, air-drying clothes, insulating your home, reusing bottles and bags, and signing up for initiatives such as EcoAction Partners' Greenlights program.
Offset your travel by investing in carbon-saving initiatives like the Colorado ranch conservation project, which is the result of a partnership between Mountainfilm and Pinhead Climate Institute or offset your remaining energy use by investing in renewable power initiatives, such as San Miguel Power Association's Green Blocks program. Take a look at the offsets offered by Mountainfilm.
Advocate for an increase in renewable energy — such as a community solar or muncipal micro-hyrdo projects — in your hometown. If you are a local, look for a petition in support of a new SMPA community solar project at this year's festival and give it your signature.
Tell your friends, spread the word, initiate projects and encourage action in your community.
