Please join us Wednesday (4:30PM PST) for our Conversations in Environmental Communication Seminar Series. Open to the public. The series explores environmental communication through the perspective of a diverse group of professionals working in the arts, journalism, social media, advocacy, business, and science. We’ll investigate how messages about nature and the environment permeate our public discourse through insightful presentations and riveting Q&A with leading experts.

GRIEF, BEAUTY, AND STATISTICS: THE POWER OF ART IN ENVIRONMENTAL COMMUNICATION (JANUARY 20)

Our speaker is Chris Jordan, an internationally acclaimed photographer and filmmaker whose works are exhibited and published worldwide. His work walks the fine line between beauty and despair while exploring the dark undercurrents of our consumer culture’s focus on disposable goods and mass consumption. His film, Albatross (available for free at www.albatrossthefilm.com), explores the impact of plastic pollution in our oceans.

LIVE AND RECORDED

You can catch this seminar and the rest of the series LIVE and recorded on the Program on the Environment’s YouTube Channel.
