Film Featuring Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter to be Screened

Film Featuring Savannah’s LEED-Certified Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter to be Screened at International Conference

 

“The Greenest Building” will be featured at 2012 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in San Francisco in November

(SAVANNAH, GA) A documentary that prominently features Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter, a temporary shelter and outreach service that serves youth from Savannah and the surrounding area, will be screened at the 2012 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in San Francisco in November.

“The Greenest Building,” produced by Jane Turville, explores whether or not a newly constructed green building is the most sustainable choice and shows how renovation and adaptive use of existing structures can fully achieve the same environmentally friendly goals.

The East Henry Street facility that houses Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter was one of five buildings around the country featured in the documentary. The 24-hour shelter was renovated in 2008 and was one of the first LEED-certified nonprofit buildings in Savannah. Architectural services on the green renovation were provided by the Cowart Group, while J.T. Turner served as the contractor. Many other individuals and organizations, including the Savannah College of Art and Design, participated in and contributed to the renovation efforts.

PARK PLACE OUTREACH YOUTH EMERGENCY SHELTER SAVANNAH PHOTO BY Bill Bennett http://parkplaceyes.org

“What drew me to Park Place Outreach was that it’s a house, something that every community has. It’s not an iconic building. All communities have buildings like Park Place Outreach,” said Turville, who is currently writing, producing and directing a series titled “The People Problem: Are There Too Many of Us?” that explores overpopulation. “Park Place Outreach shatters any belief that a green building or a preservation project only happens when certain people and organizations are involved. Anyone can do it. It’s very inspiring.”

“Park Place Outreach helped set a precedent in Savannah by earning LEED certification. It really showed their commitment to both their staff as well as those utilizing their services,” said sustainability and green building expert Tommy Linstroth, founder and principal of Trident Sustainability Group. “They aren’t there just to provide support and a roof over your head—they are giving you a healthy, inviting, high-performance environment to be in.”

“The Greenest Building” will be screened during the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo’s Greenbuild Film Festival. Greenbuild is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. For more information on “The Greenest Building,” visit www.thegreenestbuildingmovie.com.

Malik R. Watkins Receives Fulbright Specialists Award

(SAVANNAH, GA) Malik R. Watkins, Ph.D., Public Service Associate at the Carl Vinson Institute of Government, has been selected for a Fulbright Specialists project in Panama for the Municipality of Panama during the months of September and October 2012, according to the United States Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.

 

Dr. Watkins will assist the Municipality of the City of Panama in developing a strategic action plan to create a Territorial Planning and Management System that decentralizes the functions of public administration. The project is designed to promote sustainable development for the City of Panama by strengthening municipal institutions. This will be facilitated by producing a Strategic Action Plan for the development of a prototype geographic information system.  The system will provide support for the public administration as well as planning and territorial management.  Project activities involve integrating municipal and local level context and priorities, identifying critical paths for plan development, supporting personnel identification and development as well as coordinating the integration of multiple sectors of local governance, and identifying socioeconomic indicators to support local government decision making.

 

Dr. Watkins is one of over 400 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel abroad this year through the Fulbright Specialists Program. The Fulbright Specialists Program, created in 2000 to complement the traditional Fulbright Scholar Program, provides short-term academic opportunities (two to six weeks) to prominent U.S. faculty and professionals to support curricular and faculty development and institutional planning at post secondary, academic institutions around the world.

 

The Fulbright Program, America’s flagship international educational exchange activity, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Over its 60 years of existence, thousands of U.S. faculty and professionals have taught, studied or conducted research abroad, and thousands of their counterparts from other countries have engaged in similar activities in the United States. Over 285,000 emerging leaders in their professional fields have received Fulbright awards, including individuals who later became heads of government, Nobel Prize winners, and leaders in education, business, journalism, the arts and other fields.

 

Recipients of Fulbright Scholar awards are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement. Among thousands of prominent Fulbright Scholar alumni are Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning economist; Alan Leshner, CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS); Rita Dove, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet; and Craig Barrett, Chairman of the Board of Intel Corporation. Distinguished Fulbright Specialist participants include Mahmoud Ayoub, Professor of Religion at Temple University, Heidi Hartmann, President and CEO, Institute for Women’s Policy Research, Percy R. Luney, Jr. Dean and Professor, College of Law, Florida A&M University and Emily Vargas-Barone, Founder and Executive Director of the RISE Institute.

After serving as the first Fulbright Specialist to work in post-civil war Liberia, this is Dr. Watkins’s second Fulbright Assignment. He can be contacted through the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at malik@uga.edu or via phone: 706.201.2296.
