Cincinnati LEEDs the Nation Screening Event

Cincinnati LEEDs the Nation Screening Event

CET invites you to a special screening of Cincinnati LEEDs the Nation, a 25-minute film about the unprecedented achievement by the City of Cincinnati to build the first Net-Zero Energy police station in the United States. The screening will be held will be Wednesday, September 20, at CET studios from 5:30 to 7:30 pm (1223 Central Parkway, Cincinnati), and will include a panel discussion after the screening with Cincinnati police, citizens and city officials. Heavy hors d’oeuvres, soft drinks, beer, and wine will be served.   


Please call or email Lillian Derkson at 513-345-6532 or to RSVP.  Space is limited.


Produced and directed by Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Laure Quinlivan, Cincinnati LEEDs the Nation documents how Cincinnati leads the country in sustainability with its innovative, Net-Zero Energy District 3 police headquarters.  Net-Zero Energy means the District 3 police station generates enough renewable energy through its design to meet its own annual energy consumption. The documentary also illustrates how police and local citizens can work together successfully to forge new bonds, even in challenged neighborhoods like Westwood where District 3 is located.


Cincinnati LEEDs the Nation will have its broadcast premiere on public television station CET on Thursday, November 9 at 9 pm, then will be offered to PBS stations around the country. Learn more about the show at
