Join us for Energy, climate, and the media: What gets lost in translation

Canada needs a more realistic and honest dialogue about the trade-offs between energy policy, the economy, and climate protection. But how do we facilitate that dialogue? 

What are the challenges for climate/energy policy actors when working with reporters, and vice-versa? How can energy and climate stakeholders work with the media to better communicate the scientific and economic realities of the energy transition? 

Join David, Sara, Ed, and special guest Laura Lynch of CBC’s What on EarthTuesday, February 16 at 11 a.m. MST / 1 p.m. EST to hear about their positive and not-so-positive experiences communicating about climate and energy.
