The New Date is Tuesday, December 11th at 6pm


Conservation through Conversation: “Promoting environmental stewardship through interpersonal communication”

with Ezra Markowitz, Asst. Professor of Environmental Decision-Making


Most people spend very little time talking about environmental issues with their colleagues, friends and family members. Yet research shows that these are exactly the conversations we need to be having in order to promote greater public engagement with the conservation and sustainability challenges we face. Join Ezra Markowitz Umass professor and researcher of Climate Ethics and Intergenerational decision-making and the environment. In this talk, he will present some of the research he and others have done on the key role of interpersonal communication—everyday social interactions and conversations—in conservation efforts. He will then highlight how this work can be used to support pro-environmental decision-making across a variety of issues. Registration and donations appreciated.
