Annie Leonard, the director of The Story of Stuff Project, is visiting UCSB on Thursday, April 12, to present the Regents' Lecture in the Pollock Theater at 7:30 p.m. Leonard's talk is free for UCSB students.
Leonard's animated and self-narrated movies go behind-the-scenes of what is really going on with mass consumption of products and how this affects the environment. The movies have been viewed more than 15 million times worldwide. Leonard is dedicated to improving the industrial and economic systems in order to ensure environmental sustainability and social justice. Her list of movies includes:
- The Story of Stuff
- The Story of Bottled Water
- The Story of Cap & Trade
- The Story of Broke
- The Story of Cosmetics
- The Story of Electronics
- The Story of Citizens United vs. FEC
If you have 20 minutes to spare, you won't regret watching one of these enlightening movies (see The Story of Stuff below). If you have 60 minutes to spare, attend Leonard's talk on Thursday, April 12.
