This ongoing series of informal online conversations is open to anyone with interest in discussing the intersection of current social issues and climate change.
In this series we are contemplating how we all can become more inclusive in climate communication, and seek to view our work from new and diverse perspectives. Our conversations have addressed the pandemic and its impacts, the influences of social and racial injustice and activism, and the implications of communicating about climate change during times of such universal uncertainty.
Sessions are held the first and third Wednesday of each month at 3:00 PM ET (noon PT). On first Wednesdays, we'll have a “Virtual Chat”: a dialogue on a particular topic, with breakout groups so everyone will have a good chance to participate. Virtual Chats are not recorded. On third Wednesdays, we'll have a short presentation by an expert, followed by group discussion. These presentations will be archived in our library

Past Recorded Sessions
We are using Webex. It works best to install and use the application version of the program on your computer, rather than to connect via the browser. The application takes a few minutes to download and install ahead of time.
Dial-in numbers will be available if you need phone access for audio; these lines are integrated with the platform and are not toll-free. Plan to use phone for audio if your internet bandwidth is problematic. The phone numbers and access codes will be sent to you automatically when you register using the link above.
We set up a half hour early to troubleshoot with those needing assistance. Feel free to join us early to check your computer and software configuration and to socialize.
