Local YouTube channel to feature energy pioneers
- Published: June 11, 2015
When it comes to people fighting climate change, Yellow Springs has a lot of stories to tell.
The Arthur Morgan Institute for Community Solutions is looking to tell these stories on its new Energy & Climate YouTube channel, which will prominently feature Yellow Springers on the front lines of climate action.
The purpose of the channel is to share the successes, and mistakes, of villagers as they try to cut greenhouse gas emissions, while highlighting the efforts of the Village of Yellow Springs as a town, according to project filmmaker Eric Johnson.
“Everywhere there are examples of people doing things,” Johnson said. “We want to inspire others with these people’s energy and enthusiasm.”
Community Solutions is currently seeking donations for the project on the crowdfunding site Power 2 Give, where $3,600 of a $9,659 goal has been raised. Donate here.
The local non-profit, founded in 1940 by Arthur Morgan, previously received a $6,600 gift from the Yellow Springs Community Foundation, $1,000 from Antioch College and $1,000 from Solar, Power & Light for the project. The DP&L Foundation is donating $0.50 for every dollar raised on the Power 2 Give site.
The deadline to donate is Monday, June 15. The channel, which currently features around 20 videos, can be viewed at http://www.communitysolution.org.
