Force of Nature follows the iconic Canadian environmentalist as he reveals what events in his life caused him to become perhaps the most eloquent and passionate voice for environmental sanity in the world. (93 mins., 35mm)

Following the film, local environmental advocates share their own stories of what has motivated them to get involved. Our panel features Keith Dimoff, executive director of the Ohio Environmental Council; Kai Landis, who leads sustainability projects through Ohio State’s Office of Student Life; Mike Minnix, owner and president of Eartha Limited, which promotes and facilitates food service sustainability; Doug Morgan, attorney and bicycling advocate; and Shelly Casto, director of education at the Wexner Center and environmental education advocate.

Cosponsored by the Ohio Environmental Council.
