HARNESSING VISUAL STORYTELLING: HOW ENVIRONMENTALISTS ARE IGNITING ACTION
Featuring Dr. Ian Miller
Movements to rescue the planet from climate change are existential and confront the most vital issue of our time: how to protect the shared and equitable future of humanity. For decades, environmental activists have been at the forefront of protest and policy, and storytelling has played a vital role — educating all of us on how to take action, while also encouraging business and government to take more responsibility.
What lessons can environmental movements across the world teach about the successes and failures of activism? What are the most effective narrative devices for promoting education, culture shifts, and changes to public policy?
This session will explore the intersections between media and environmental movements to uncover new ideas and inspire action through content and storytelling.
