Join us Saturday April 7 for the first Our New Energy (ONE) Fair, a new event featuring:
Screening of Seeds of Hope, the latest film in Oceans 8 Films’ Hudson River Stories series by Jon Bowermaster
Marketplace of local sustainability organizations
Local organizations sharing stories of their efforts to preserve and enliven our beautiful region
Creative studio workshop series to exchange ideas, tips and practical advice
A broad range of local environmental organizations will be in attendance, with individuals from Catskill Mountainkeeper, Hudson Solar, Riverkeeper, Seeding Sovereignty, Citizen’s Climate Lobby, New Yorkers for Clean Power, New York Heartwoods, Sustainable Hudson Valley, LabX presented by National Academy of Science, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Bread Alone, Stop NY Fracked Gas Pipeline, Citizen Advocates for Sustainable Energy (CASE) and Transition Catskills.
Following the 2017 Hudson River at Risk and Hope On The Hudson programs that invited Hudson Valley environmental advocates and green organizations to connect with local residents, Basilica Hudson will also once again partner with the Good Work Institute and writer, filmmaker and six-time National Geographic Expeditions Council grantee Jon Bowermaster at ONE Fair. The event will include a screening of Seeds Of Hope, the latest film from Jon Bowermaster’s Hudson River Stories series, and will form part of the Hope On The Hudson screening tour spanning Saratoga to Battery Park.
Basilica Hudson’s long-time supporter Green Mountain Energy will also be at ONE Fair, inviting attendees to learn more about their mission to use consumer choice to change the way power is made. Since Basilica Hudson partnered with Green Mountain Energy in 2013, Green Mountain Energy have signed enough customers up to their service at Basilica events to offset over 2,430,000 lbs of CO2 annually, the equivalent of planting over 252,000 trees or 2,641,664 car miles not driven!
The Hudson Valley is the birthplace of the American environmental movement, with the Hudson River as central muse and catalyst. The investment and engagement of local organizations gives us hope for the future, and we are proud to be joining the dialogue.
