Sustaining this Place
“Sustainability” is a popular concept, but what does it look like in practice? From Mount Marcy to Manhattan–all along the length of the Hudson River region–sustainability entrepreneurs are pursuing new approaches to farming, creating community, greening business, land preservation, and more. Along the way, they are re-envisioning–socially constructing–the Hudson region’s landscape as a sustainability incubator. Rik Scarce will share a rough cut of Sustaining this Place and will discuss documentary making from a sociological perspective.
