“We are a nation in transition.” The shift from fossil fuels to clean energy is rapidly transforming the energy industry with profound impacts on workers and communities. How can we ameliorate the disruptions and facilitate a just and sustainable transition?
Join American Resilience Project, the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory and the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies for the premiere of Current Revolution: Nation in Transition (30 min), a documentary about the closure of the Navajo Generating Station — the West’s largest coal-fired powerplant — and the Navajo Nation’s efforts to deal with its impacts and embrace renewable energy.
The film examines how we, as a nation, can transition from fossil fuels to clean energy in a way that builds resilience and new opportunities for the communities and workers affected by the energy transition.
Following the premiere, participate in a Q&A discussion with:
- Roger Sorkin, Director of Nation in Transition, founder of the American Resilience Project
- Paul Hirt, Co-Producer of Nation in Transition and Professor Emeritus, Arizona State University, School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies
- Edward Dee, Executive Director, Office of Navajo Government Development
Moderated by Kris Mayes, Professor of Practice, Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory
