Climate Choices

KDNK Station, 76 S. Second Street, Carbondale
Wednesdays, 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
August 2, Climate Choices Forum
August 9, Energy Choices Forum
August 16, Water Availability Forum

All KDNK members are invited to participate in the Community deliberative forum series. Participants will weigh options, listen to understand, expand democratic attitudes around climate, water, and energy, build relationships, and increase their civic capacity. The goal of the series is to provide a space for dialogue for those interested in better understanding multiple perspectives on how to address the impacts of climate change, water availability and energy choices and to consider alternative actions, tradeoffs, and underlying values. During each evening, you will review three options to address the topic. Come as you are; you don't need any special knowledge or preparation to participate.

For the discussion, we will use the Environmental Issues Forum materials that have been developed through a partnership between the Kettering Foundation and the North American Association for Environmental Education. The intent of the forums is to bring community members together to discuss, make choices with others about ways to approach difficult issues, and to work toward developing reasoned public opinion.

We anticipate about 15 people will attend each evening. Come to as all three evenings or only one or two. Sarah R. Johnson, KDNK member and trained deliberative forum moderator will facilitate.

Space is limited. Please RSVP for each forum to Gavin Dahl, gavin@kdnk.org, by Tuesday prior to the forum. If many people are interested, an additional discussion evening will be scheduled.
