The Green Café Network and Nomad will host a free screening of “2% Solution,” followed by Q&A and discussion.  They will also screen a 20-minute film, “The Story of Stuff,” produced by Free Range Studios with host Annie Leonard. 
After screening the “2% Solution,” participants will be encouraged to vote on what they think are the top five solutions from a list of 10 that are available at www.focusthenation.org. Vote results will be presented nationally in mid February. All students who vote on the Choose Your Future ballot will be eligible to win a $10,000 leadership scholarship for a project to be completed by end of August 2008.  The Nomad is located at 6500 Shattuck Ave.  The tel# is (510) 595-5344.
