Join the Lowell Green Building Commission and the Lowell Film Collaborative for their 4th Annual Outdoor Bike-In Film Screening at Shedd Park Pavilion and see the multi-award winning YERT (Your Environmental Road Trip), a groundbreaking adventure and celebration of the American spirit in the face of adversity! This thought-provoking, inspiring, and (most importantly) hilarious documentary showcases the courageous and creative individuals, groups, businesses, and leaders across the U.S. who are tackling the greatest environmental threats in history. Called into action by the ever-increasing threats of planetary catastrophe — from climate change to toxic pollution, from water scarcity to habitat destruction — Mark Dixon, Ben Evans, and Julie Dingman Evans upend their lives, pool their collective life-savings, and set off on a first-of-its-kind, 50-state, year-long journey of discovery to personalize sustainability and to answer a critical question: ARE WE DOOMED?
