Wednesday, April 21 at 1:00pm to 2:00pm
In celebration of Earth Day, the USC Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies, the USC Dornsife Center for the Political Future, and GRoW@Annenberg are hosting a series of conversations around advancing climate change issues. A slate of political figures, academics, scientists, policy, and industry experts will address climate change through the lenses of social justice, business, communication, and politics as we look ahead to the priorities of President Biden’s Administration.
Each of the four days will focus on a different policy area that is critical to advancing climate change solutions.
Day 3 - Words That Work: Red States and Climate Change
In a time where climate change has become a partisan issue, how can we communicate the urgency of environmental legislation and encourage bipartisan support? Why are red and blue states seeing climate change differently? How should communication on climate change vary based on the audience? Are government agencies and international bodies communicating effectively to conservatives?
