HOW TO: AVOID CLIMATE ALARMISM
March 25th, 2021 | 6:00 - 7:00 PM EST VIA ZOOM
For the final ‘How To’ event of the semester, UTEA presents ‘How to Avoid Climate Alarmism’. In this workshop we will consider how the framing of the climate crisis influences levels of interest and engagement, and how to avoid fear mongering in the conversations we have. Alarmism presents problems both in terms of climate anxiety as well as alienating potential interested parties, and so this month we will be talking about how we talk about climate change.
Join Stephanie X and 2nd Speaker (TBD), along with UTEA’s External Advocacy team this month to explore issues of framing, fear and anxiety within the climate change movement. We will be examining both how climate alarmism can be harmful, as well as how both individuals and institutions can avoid it. We look forward to seeing you there!
