WORKSHOP: CONNECT WITH YOUR WILD SIDE
WITH Project Wild Thing
Saturday, May 31, 2:00PM, Roxie Theater
We all need to reconnect with nature. Spend more time outdoors and remember why nature is so important to us. In Project Wild Thing we see that the spread of screen technology in our homes and on mobile, is keeping our kids — and us — a little distracted. Join us right after the screening for a reminder of the fun and wonder that nature has to hold, right on our doorstep.
MEDIA SOCIAL: LUNCH LOVE COMMUNITY
Sunday, June 1, 1:00PM, Roxie Theater
Do we know what our children are eating? Focused on the real-life experience of community advocates and food professionals that have worked with educators in Berkeley, CA, this is an interactive session using short films and expert discussion to inspire change in the way kids eat. Learn more about food systems reform, what others have done successfully, and what it means for our community.
PANEL DISCUSSION: THE FUTURE OF FISH
WITH The Last Ocean
Sunday, June 1, 3:00PM, Roxie Theater
Where is your seafood from? Is it sustainably or even legally caught? With over 80% of seafood imported into the USA, what is a socially conscious seafood lover to do? Listen to a panel of experts discuss these and other issues around sustainable fishing, including scientist Dr. David Ainley, Casson Trenor, owner, Tataki Restaurants and specialists from the seafood trade.
PANEL DISCUSSION: WATER IN THE WEST
Sunday, June 1, 7:45PM, Roxie Theater
What is the future of water in California? As we face the worst drought in decades, how do we balance the lack of water with pressure from agriculture, fracking and a growing population?

PANEL DISCUSSION: OUR FOOD AT RISK
WITH Seeds of Time
Monday, June 2, 6:00PM, Roxie Theater
With IPCC scientists warning that severe weather will lower global agricultural production, the connection between food and climate disruption is coming to the fore.
