Michelle Whiting is a filmmaker and graphic designer with a passion for communicating hopeful messages and solutions surrounding sustainability topics. Her documentary, “Setting out for Sustainability,” is a part of the official selection at the 2021 Eugene Environmental Film Festival as well as the 2021 Nature Without Borders International Film Festival, where it received the “Award of Exceptional Merit.” In May 2020, Michelle graduated from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies and concentrations in globalization and the environment. As a student, she balanced researching environmental stewardship and sustainability with performing, choreographing, and teaching contemporary dance. Michelle’s choreographic work has been featured in the Sarus Festival, Arts Sensation, the Wilmington Dance Festival, and the Lumina Festival of the Arts. She has also enjoyed mentoring other young choreographers and dancers. Michelle completed the greenhouse gas inventory for her alma mater, which details three years of the university’s emissions trends and carbon offsets. She is excited to continue her academic and sustainability journey at Wake Forest University in the Fall of 2021, where she will be pursuing her Master of Arts in Sustainability. Michelle is grateful to be a part of the POP Movement and she looks forward to continuing to collaborate with other members of the POP Family.
