James Hoggan on the Polluted Public Square

April 30


Jim Hoggan is on a mission to determine why, in spite of compelling and unequivocal scientific evidence, we are doing so little to address environmental problems. In Jim’s view, the most immediate ecological threat of our time isn’t the threat of global climate change. It’s the toxic public conversations surrounding the issues, the contaminated smog of misinformation and bitter adversarial rhetoric that are turning many away from collective involvement in despair.

In this FREE webinar, Jim will present the views of some of today’s leading thinkers on how we clean up the polluted public square and begin to make progress in communicating about and effectively addressing the environmental issues that concern us all.

Jim Hoggan is one of Canada’s most respected public relations professionals and the president and owner of Hoggan & Associates, an award winning firm specializing in crisis management and stakeholder engagement for government, industry and non-for-profit organizations. Jim is the co-founder of DeSmogBlog, chosen as one of Time Magazine’s Best Blogs for 2011 for its work exposing corporate misinformation campaigns. Jim has been a member of the David Suzuki Foundation Board since 2001 and has served as Chair since 2007.

This free webinar is part of a series of Shared Learning Opportunities, a joint project of the Sustainability Network and the Canadian Environmental Grantmakers’ Network with the support of the Vancouver Foundation. This session will be moderated by Andre Vallillee, Program Manager, Province-Wide Grants of Ontario Trillium Foundation.

The one hour webinar will take place on April 30th at 1 pm Eastern.
