Yikes! Did you know that streaming video — viral videos on your phone, Netflix binges on your computer — occupies about 7% of the global energy footprint?! But don’t panic! Join students at SFU’s School for the Contemporary Arts as we lay out the problem and propose solutions, from low-tech alternatives to true-cost accounting to activism.
