    The Building Education Series 2017

    BUILDING EDUCATION SERIES 2017 - PROJECT FINANCING OPTIONS

     

    Access to capital for an energy-efficiency upgrade need not be an issue. Some upgrades require little funding. For those that do require investment, don't worry; there are many traditional and non-traditional financial resources available. A well-designed upgrade can provide your business a positive cash flow from energy savings while paying off the capital investment for new equipment. 


    Learn how to evaluate your facility, identify rebates and incentives, and determine the right debt financing option for your project.

    INHABIT: A Permaculture Perspective. Movie Screening with the Filmmaker

    We are so pleased to bring you the first Northeastern Ohio screening of INHABIT: A Permaculture Perspective!

     

    Please join us for this inspiring film showing and then stay for a question and answer session with the filmmaker - Costa Boutsikaris! DVDs will be available for purchase as well.

     

     Doors open at 6:30pm and the movie will start at 7pm.

     

    INHABIT is a feature length documentary introducing permaculture: a design method that offers an ecological lens for solving issues related to agriculture, economics, governance, and on. The film presents a vast array of projects, concepts, and people, and it translates the diversity of permaculture into something that can be understood by an equally diverse audience. For those familiar, it will be a call to action and a glimpse into what's possible - what kind of projects and solutions are already underway. For those unfamiliar, it will be an introduction to a new way of being and a new way of relating to the Earth. For everyone, it will be a reminder that humans are capable of being planetary healing forces.
