Long Island City, Queens, September 17, 2013 - - A unique series of free film screening events is taking place this September in LIC.  Three films about our interwoven environmental, energy and economic challenges will be followed by facilitated discussion among audience members.

The events are organized by Dan Miner, familiar to the Queens business community as the former SVP of Long Island City Partnership - but also a longtime environmental activist.  Now working as District Manager at Manhattan Community Board 6, Miner plans to keep organizing screenings as a volunteer throughwww.meetup.com/resiliencenyc/ and www.beyondoilnyc.org.

"NYC will have to adapt to long-term climate change while working to slow it down, and at the same time build resilience for extreme weather events and disruptions which climate change will make more frequent.  This is a job not just for the next Mayor but for all New Yorkers.  Many initiatives can build resilience, cut carbon emissions, save money and create local jobs, all at the same time. Raising public awareness about our environmental, energy and economic challenges can tap into the creativity of New Yorkers.  We need to get the business community and civic groups talking about this," said Miner. 

Miner, organizer of the Resilience NYC Meetup, is inviting neighbors and western Queens civic leaders to eco-cafe Coffeed in LIC on Mondays in September at 7 PM.   Coffeed, at 37-18 Northern Blvd., LIC, NY 11101, downstairs from the Brooklyn Grange rooftop farm, is providing free coffee and home-baked pastries for the events. www.coffeednyc.com/

After screenings, in facilitated group discussion, listeners will be guided in brainstorming ways to make their community greener and more resilient.   Attendees will be referred to existing programs & resources to help them take next steps along with their neighbors.
