The EWB-BU organization is ready and excited to present the first ever Film Festival! We have compiled a series of short films and feature length movies that will discuss both global development and the humanitarian work we do. As we continue our partnership with the community in Naluja, Zambia this film festival is intended to reach out to more people in order to raise awareness for global health and community development.
- When? March 2, 2013, starting at 11 a.m.
- Where? BU Photonics Center: 8 St. Mary’s St. Boston, MA 02215
- How Much? FREE!
- Why? There will be food from Cane’s, great movies to watch, exciting things to learn, and many people to meet!
- Films? We’ll have some excellent titles, including “The Shape of Water,” RX for Survival: A Global Health Challenge,” “AIDS Warrior,” and “Kids Living with Slim.”
The film festival will be a fun experience that will give you the opportunity to meet other students that are compassionate for helping communities that lack essential resources. We hope to unite all the organizations that are involved in global work and community-oriented efforts. This will establish a common ground platform for making connections, spreading awareness, gaining contacts from professional groups, and meeting motivated students through an entertaining and unique setting.
Guaranteed a great experience and meeting interesting people!
The world needs a paradigm shift in how things are made and how frequently things are consumed. In a consumerist society like ours and many more in the western world we must step up for ourselves and spread this message.
Cynicism can only delay the time it takes one to realize the problem and will lengthen one’s exposure to harmful, avoidable, yet ignored discharge created by the same products one buys.

Do you know where to dispose of frying cooking oil after making a delicious omelette?
Well, although not many people fry in their house anymore, whenever we do we throw the burnt oil down the sink drain or the toilet in some cases. This is one of the worst mistakes that we can prevent. Why do we do it? Simply because no one out there has ever told us how to do it adequately.
So here’s a simple solution: one should wait for the cooking oil to cool down and dispose of it in plastic or glass bottles and place them in garbage cans. A liter of oil, aka 34 fluid ounces, is enough to cause about one million liters of water (26,000 gallons) to become non-potable (unsafe for drinking), which is a sufficient amount for a person to use over a 14-year period.
If you can dispose of your oil at a recycling center, even better! It could be turned into bio-diesel or fuel. Care for the environment if you want it to care for you.
