2020 Environmental Advocacy Symposium
The time has never been more urgent for environmental advocacy. Climate change, biodiversity loss, and social inequity are creating an increasingly unstable and impoverished world. The magnitude of the problems we face demands systemic changes to our economy and way of life, and science and education alone are not sufficient to bring about those changes. We need a new generation of savvy environmental advocates and activists, and more scholarship and teaching of advocacy so that more people can take informed and strategic action to create systems change.
The symposium has been modified into a virtual event. A selection of presentations will be available as a webinar series hosted by Antioch University.
Presentations will be on research, teaching, or practice and may include:
- strategies for effective environmental advocacy
- working with Congress and elected officials,
- communication with and mobilization of the public, and
- diversity and intersectionality.
We are especially excited to share presentations focused on cutting-edge and transformational systems-level advocacy addressing:
- climate change
- toxics pollution
- biodiversity conservation
- energy transition, and
- environmental justice.
