Peter Byck, director and producer of "Carbon Nation" and a new professor of practice for the School of Sustainability and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, is currently teaching students sustainability concepts through documentary-making.
"It’s about solutions and changing students’ careers," says Byck. "It was a beautiful fit for my next project."
Students from both schools are divided into three teams investigating solar issues in Arizona. The students will then showcase their documentaries to a live audience at the end of the semester. Byck is also partnering with ASU to create a follow-up to "Carbon Nation" called "Carbon Nation Mach 2."
