Climate, Education and Democracy – A Conversation with David Orr and Erik Assadourian: Climate, Education and Democracy

by Arturo Herrera on October 5, 2017

Tue, Oct 24, 2017 1:15 PM – 2:00 PM EDT


Please join Island Press and the Security and Sustainability Forum in a 45 minute online conversation with David Orr, Oberlin College and Erik Assadourian, World Watch Institute, about climate, education and democracy.
This is a follow up to a recent webinar featuring WWI’s latest publication in its State of the World annual series, “EarthEd – Rethinking Education on a Changing Planet”.


David Orr –“The elections of 2016 in Western democracies showed the fault lines emerging in our civic culture. They are a dispute between advocates of competing paradigms about the possible and desirable scale of human domination of the ecosphere and who benefits and who loses.”



Erik Assadourian – “Education alone will not save humanity, but it may play an essential role in enabling people to get through the turbulent times ahead with their humanity intact.”



Elisabeth Graffy, Arizona State University, will moderate the discussion.

The session format is a panel discussion rather than slide presentations, and audience Q&A.
