Peter filmingFor his new professor of practice position at ASU’s School of Sustainability and ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Peter Byck will be teaching a new “Sustainability Storytelling” course this fall.

Students from the two schools will learn how to produce and direct their own five-minute documentaries about issues surrounding clean energy and climate change. Byck is a seasoned documentarist; his first film, “Garbage,” won the South by Southwest Film Festival and his second documentary, “Carbon Nation,” is gaining worldwide attention.

“Working with a large university like ASU will allow us to amplify stories out into the world because we need to educate the American people on clean energy,” says Byck.
