Talking About Climate Change Through Video with Alex Griswold
Wednesday, December 6, 4-5 PM

Examples of videos that push the wrong buttons abound. Presenting solutions, being aware of audience preconceptions, and understanding the values the audience brings to the discussion are alternative ways to move the needle toward a solution. Alex Griswold is the research associate and multimedia producer at the Harvard University Center for the Environment. Learn more at http://burecseminars.blogspot.com/ Free.
