James Hoggan on the Polluted Public Square, Sustainability Network

April 30, 2013

1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern

Jim Hoggan is on a mission to determine why, in spite of compelling and unequivocal scientific evidence, we are doing so little to address environmental problems. In Jim's view, the most immediate ecological threat of our time isn't the threat of global climate change. It's the toxic public conversations surrounding the issues, the contaminated smog of misinformation and bitter adversarial rhetoric that are turning many away from collective involvement in despair.

In this webinar, Jim will present the views of some of today's leading thinkers on how we clean up the polluted public square and begin to make progress in communicating about and effectively addressing the environmental issues that concern us all.

This free webinar is part of a series of Shared Learning Opportunities, a joint project of the Sustainability Network and the Canadian Environmental Grantmakers' Network with the support of the Vancouver Foundation. This session will be moderated by Andre Vallillee, Program Manager, Province-Wide Grants of Ontario Trillium Foundation.
