FREE March 4th DISCUSSION VIA ZOOM “The Meaning of Climate Change”
The March 4 event is part of Oregon Humanities’ statewide Conversation Project.
We live in a time of tremendous transformation as the reality of climate change and its effects on our communities become more apparent with every passing year. While there is still much that can and must be done to mitigate the range of impacts climate change might have, we are confronting the certainty of a crisis that will continue to unfold no matter what we do. What is the meaning of this extraordinary moment in human history? The meanings we construct about climate change affect how we think about it, our feelings about it, and our willingness to take action.
Portland State University instructor David Osborn will lead a discussion exploring different meanings of climate change and how our understanding of meaning relates to action. This is part of the Oregon Humanities Conversation Project Series which endeavors to bring people together to talk about their beliefs and experiences around timely and important issues and ideas.
This is the focus of The Meaning of Climate Change a free conversation with David Osborn on Friday March 4th, at 4 PM. This event is hosted by Sitka Center for Art and Ecology and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. RSVP at www.sitkacenter.org/events.
