Shifting Sands: On the Path to Sustainability

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Have you watched Shifting Sands: On the Path to Sustainability yet? Released in 2016, it’s a locally produced documentary that tracks the past and future of “an ecological marvel unlike any place else in the world” – the south shore of Lake Michigan.

“On the South Shore of Lake Michigan stunning natural beauty collides with heavy industry like nowhere else in the country. Shifting Sands: On the Path to Sustainability explores how the Indiana Dunes region, where rare plants grow in the shadow of smokestacks, may offer a blueprint to a sustainable future.”

Available for public or private screenings as well as available on DVD, it’s a documentary well worth watching for anyone anywhere near the region, and even those that aren’t. More than just a look at the region’s past, Shifting Sands lays out a hopeful look at how present and future friction between industrial and environmental concerns can be managed to the benefit of all, along the south shore and beyond.
