Sunday Platform – Genevieve Guenther: Keywords for a New Climate
September 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Why is there not a bigger movement of people demanding our governments take action on climate change? Part of the problem is that we talk about climate change in ways that uphold the ideals of the fossil-fuel system we’re trying to transform. Using the words “uncertainty,” “cost,” “resilience,” and “we” as examples, Dr Guenther will discuss how to think and talk about the climate crisis in ways that mobilize political action.
Genevieve Guenther is Affiliate Faculty at the Tishman Environment and Design Center at The New School and the founder and director of End Climate Silence.

FREE and open to the public.
Sunday Platform is our most important and long-standing community event. These gatherings educate, stimulate personal growth, inspire reflection and action, and strengthen our community. Sunday meetings usually begin with music, followed by greetings and a talk given by a Society Leader, member, or guest. Platforms cover a variety of topics that reflect current events, pressing social issues, and Ethical Culture philosophy. A collection basket is passed and money is shared between the Society and a charity selected for that day. While contributions are always appreciated, Sunday meetings are free and open to the public. Each Sunday meeting is followed by a luncheon and social hour.
