2012 Festival

Schedule Speakers Sponsors

Tales From Planet Earth returned in the spring of 2012, with more than 2,000 people joining us for our cinematic trip around the globe. Our third incarnation was built around the theme of Environmental Soundings -- both sounding out environmental stories in unexpected places and telling stories of people 'sounding off' in various ways, making their voices heard on environmental issues.

We strayed from our biennial schedule for this particular festival in order to partner with the American Society for Environmental History (ASEH) annual conference, also hosted by the Center for Culture, History, and Environment, which offered public events connected to Tales.
