Boston University's School of Education is committed to education and practices that foster ecological sustainability. Through a unique, energetic, and always expanding collective of faculty, students, and staff known as sedGreen, we have installed solar panels and a small wind turbine as part of an educational demonstration project; embarked on an important energy-reduction campaign; developed a high-compliance recycling program; demonstrated human and bike power within renewable energy and good health objectives; partnered with the Tiputini Biodiversity Station in the northwest Amazon to further conservation biology education; and we constantly strive toward making sustainability thinking a part of the fabric of our many courses and policies.

This film documents the project of Brazilian artist Vik Muniz as he travels to the world's largest trash dump ("Jardim Gramacho") on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. His intent is to capture the lives of the "catadores”—self-designated pickers of recyclable materials who make their livings off the land fill. Both devastating and inspiring, "Wasteland" has an unforgettable environmental and humanitarian message.
