Tune in and Chill Out!

from Wildlife Promise

0 4/9/2009 // By Jen Fournelle // ,

On April 15, National Wildlife Federation will unveil the winners of the 2009 campus Chill Out competition!  These campuses are incredible examples of how the students, faculty and staff at colleges and universities are leading the way towards a sustainable and clean energy future.

We’re announcing the results in a free webcast – Chill Out: Campus Solutions to Global Warming that you can screen on your campus or on your laptop. Tune in to hear from colleges that are leading the clean energy movement and lowering their carbon footprints.

Speaking of footprints, we made sure to keep this a low carbon production, going well beyond the industry’s sustainable filmmaking guidelines. In fact, we were recognized by the Environmental Media Association’s Green Seal Program for using the film industry’s best environmental practices.

This year’s webcast features an all-star cast of students, faculty and staff from all over the country, along with some Hollywood faces—Comedian and host of Planet Green’s Wa$ted Annabelle Gurwitch, Academy Award Winner Producer Lawrence Bender, Actor Efren Ramirez (Napoleon
Dynamite), Actor Michael Welch (Twilight), Actor Jose Yenque (Traffic) and many more!

Register to see how we greened our production, who were this year's competition winners, and what real ingenuity and leadership on campus looks like. We recommend you use Chill Out as a mobilizing tool, on its own or as part of your other Earth Day activities. We’ll even send you an organizing kit via email to help you plan. The webcast will be available at 9am on April 15, so you can download and view at your own convenience. The program lasts 30 minutes and is designed for students, faculty, staff and administrators.

(Oh, and there are prizes for a lucky few, like a Kaplan Test Prep course or an Mp3 download from The Steps. Just thought you’d want to know.)
