Join a challenging conversation some have dubbed "environmental communications in the Anthropocene" to discuss the problems with presenting complex ecological information publicly. Rose Aguilar from KALW's Your Call radio, Brent Plater of the Wild Equity Institute, and environmental scientist and climate change activist Azibuike Akaba discuss and debate issues of scientific literacy, critical thinking, basic education, attention spans, buzzwords, guest selection, framing and definition of scientific issues, overcoming propaganda and simplistic jargon, and much more!
This event occurs on the same night as my last exam of the semester. If all goes well, I will arrive at the venue just before the lecture begins. But there is the possibility that I may arrive a little late. Keep an eye out my backpack with the meetup sign.
