Green Vs. Gold
PLV Media and Communication Arts students present the premiere of Green vs. Gold: Brazil's Race to Balance Its Sports-Fueled Tourism Boom, the documentary they wrote, shot, and produced on location in Brazil.
A few months ago, we told you all about Dyson Professor Maria Luskay, EdD, New York Times “Dot Earth” blogger and Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding Andrew Revkin, and the Media and Communication Arts students who were headed to Brazil during spring break to create a documentary that explores how citizens, officials, and companies are working to ensure that the impending burst of tourism and frenzy of construction for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics does more good than harm.
After days and nights of researching, collecting, and editing, the students’ hard work comes to fruition as they premiere their documentary, Green vs. Gold: Brazil's Race to Balance Its Sports-Fueled Tourism Boom!, the fourth in a prize-winning series of films focused on sustainable resource management and environmental conservation.
Will the tourism boom accompanying the back-to-back 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics be too much of a good thing for Brazil to bear? From an emerald tropical isle to an ancient port to the hillside favelas and spectacular soccer stadiums of Rio, citizens and experts describe the environmental and social challenges and opportunities in balancing green and gold.
