AV Benefits:

Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

Professional Reviews:

"Just finished watching the video with a few staff members and our initial reaction is "You guys knocked it out of the park!" You took a very tough topic (in view of all of the things we face as a nation) and made an interesting and compelling argument for how/why schools should 'Think Green'."

"The story is well organized; the music and visuals great; it holds attention; and moves well around the country for many different "green school" experiences. The film literally "left no school behind" as to how they could start, continue, or expand the process." - Michael, Washington D.C. Public Schools.
