BECC Webinar: How Climate Story-Telling Can Change Our World

August 31, 2021 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT

Entertainment has the attention of the world. And, it can show us possibilities we have yet to imagine. It offers a vision of what our future world could look like and can have the emotional ingredients necessary to ignite the action. But, how can stories of all kinds ignite action and create change?

We conducted the largest climate media study to-date to answer this question and have developed an on-line platform to further investigate climate media effects as it's created. These components represent the backbone of a new venture, Resilience Entertainment, to support social change to address climate change.

Speaker: Sabrina McCormick PhD, fuses sociology, public health, and filmmaking to address climate change. Her work has been published in Science, Nature Climate Change and dozens of other outlets, and she has been a producer on Emmy Award-winning television. She has advised multiple federal entities and is a member of the National Academies of Science Climate Communication Initiative. Dr. McCormick’s work is regularly featured in media outlets, including The New York Times, National Public Radio, and the Washington Post.
