WEBINAR 2: Communicating for Climate Action
July 23, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-4
Special Guest Speaker, Bob Inglis, Executive Director of RepublicEn, Former South Carolina Republican Congressman and ECA Chapter Leaders, Grady McGonagill (Massachusetts), Hazel Chandler (Arizona), and John Sorensen, Shirley McGrath, Sheila Tarbett (Northern California).
Hear from this former congressman’s work to educate the country about free-enterprise solutions to climate change. Inglis believes that with a true level playing field, free enterprise can deliver the innovation to solve climate change. But America’s climate policy needs to change. Change requires that conservative leaders step-up and lead. Learn some of the best strategies for reaching across the aisle to communicate about climate change especially when addressing skeptics.
The second part of this webinar will be a panel discussion and presentations by elders who have stepped up and started Elders Climate Action chapters in three very different parts of the country. Hear how they inspired others to join our movement of elders acting for future generations and what initiatives these very different chapters in different parts of the country are pursuing.
Bob Inglis launched the Energy and Enterprise Initiative (“E&EI”) at George Mason University in July 2012 and serves as executive director, where he promotes free enterprise action on climate change.
For his work on climate change Inglis was given the 2015 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. He appears in the film Merchants of Doubt and in the Showtime series YEARS of Living Dangerously (episodes 3 and 4), and he spoke at TEDxJacksonville (watch).
