Voices for Change: Empowering Climate Change Communicators

Thursday, January 18, 2024 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm

PCPSE 250 (the Forum)

A discussion between EDWARD MAIBACH (George Mason University) and ANDREW HOFFMAN (University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine).

On January 18, we invite you to an event featuring distinguished University Professor Edward Maibach, Director of the Center for ClimateChange Communication at George Mason University—a university-based “think-and-do tank.” Professor Maibach will illuminate some key insights into public understanding of climate communication that have emerged from the Yale/George Mason “Climate Change in the American Mind” surveys conducted twice yearly since 2008. He will also discuss his center’s initiatives to activate and support trusted climatecommunicators in communities across America including TV weathercasters, health professionals, and conservatives who are concerned about climate change. This event is a unique opportunity to engage with a leading expert on climate communication and its role in cultivating public and political will for climate solutions.
