Re-Skilling Fest on Green Room

City of Ann Arbor CitiTV streaming video has a great program called Green Room TV moderated by filmmaker Barbara Lucas.  This link takes you to a 27 minute interview with Laura Smith, an Expert in Architecture and Environmental Psychology.  Laura  discusses dwindling natural resources & climate change with a focus on the Transition Towns movement and local responses towards resilience.  At the end she mentions many local efforts but the main focus is on the Ann Arbor Re-Skilling Fest that happens twice per year.  Lucas includes a short 4-minute film: The Who What Why Where and How of Re-Skilling with lots of fun footage from past Re-Skilling Fests.

Barb Lucas first came to my attention through her excellent film about honeybees called The Pollinator Pyramid.  The three-part 20 minute video talks about creating habitat to help honeybees survive the new pressures in the environment; alternatives to pesticides, especially for lawns; and combatting “insectophobia” by fostering wonder and awe.
