Sustainability endeavors are growing strong in our community.  In the High Country, we share a rich history of working together to ensure that our mountain region will forever be a wonderful place to call home. The Roots of Resilience Film Festival celebrates some of these efforts through a series of seven mini-documentaries, each spotlighting local people and organizations working on various dimensions of cultivating sustainable community, including:

  • ASU Office of Sustainability (campus sustainability)
  • Blue Ridge Conservancy (land protection)
  • Blue Ridge RC&D (fire-adapted communities)
  • Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture (sustainable agriculture)
  • New River Conservancy (water protection)
  • Todd Listening Project (community development)
  • Valle Crucis Community Park (environmental education)

This event is hosted by participants in the Sustainable Development course Outreach Skills for Sustainability, including students and instructor Laura England (

Special thanks to Tom Hansell of University Documentary Film Services for assisting the class in planning and creating these mini-documentary films.
