Event description

Description

Why do journalists still ask if decision makers ‘believe in climate change’? Why does the media persist in ‘balancing’ public debates by pitching uninformed sceptics against the near scientific consensus on the urgency of tackling human-induced climate change? How can we overcome intentional ignorance to prevent catastrophic global warming in the age of the anthropocene where human activity dominates climate and the environment?

In this seminar, influential climate change expert Will Steffen and discerning cartoonist David Pope will share insights about communicating climate change to the masses.

SPEAKERS
PROFESSOR WILL STEFFEN, Member, ACT Climate Change Council, Emeritus Professor, ANU, Councillor, Climate Council

DAVID POPE, Canberra Times editorial cartoonist

CHAIR, SU WILD-RIVER
Climate Change and Sustainability Division, EPSDD, Member, EIANZ
