Thank you to all of the teachers and students who attended our 11thannual Environmental Youth Forum at the DocLands Documentary Film Festival in May!
The 2019 Environmental Youth Forum (EYF) brought hundreds of Bay Area students to the theater to watch films, discuss issues, and interact with multiple science-based exhibits in our Active Cinema Room including games, VR, wildlife and more—all grounded in teaching environmental awareness and activism, with a strong emphasis on innovations and solutions.
We were excited to extend our programming to the East Bay for the first time this year, presenting two screenings at the David Brower Center in Berkeley. We hope to continue that partnership in 2020 to better serve more East Bay schools.
Overall, this year’s EYF included 14 screenings of 16 different films, 12 interactive exhibits, 14 special guests, 2,500 students—and 1 live owl! We hope you will join us again for our 12thEYF in 2020. Dates will be announced in the fall. Click here for details on what was featured in our 2019 program.
