Event Description

Facilitator: Joe Brewer

We will discuss how to better communicate about a problem that is 1) nonlinear, 2) systemic, 3) distant in time, 4) impersonal, and 5) requiring fundamental changes in how we organize our daily lives. Joe will also provide his review of an exciting new book, "Prosocial," which helps groups learn about and adopt design principles to improve practical outcomes from their endeavors. 

Hosted by Stillpoint at Beckside Spirituality Center and the Multi-Faith Network Climate Justice Group
