This three-part series of documentaries with host Des Kennedy looks at some of the biggest challenges facing us today - work and time, food, and urban sustainability - and how innovative thinkers and doers from the famous to the obscure, from Berkeley to Sao Paolo, Brazil, are coming up with some of the ways of getting there from here.

Film: Vanishing of the Bees

Presented by the RRTTC, this film follows why honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives. Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, scientists puzzle over the cause. Organic beekeepers indicate alternative reasons for this tragic loss and after years of research, a definitive answer has not been found to this harrowing mystery.

America Recycles Day

The Recycling & Reuse Technology Transfer Center will have a booth in Maucker Union with recycling information, including recycling locations on and off-campus. America Recycles Day is a great reminder for all of us to promote recycling practices in your circle of friends, at work and at home.  RRTTC staff members will also be on campus looking to reward people they find recycling on America Recycles Day so remember to “Get Your Green On” and maybe you’ll be one of our lucky winners.
