The Meaning of Climate Change

April 21, 2020 | 11:30 a.m. | Pacific University McCall Center for Civic Engagement

2043 College Way, Washburne Hall / University Center Boxer Pause, Forest Grove OR 97116

We live in a time of tremendous transformation as the reality of climate change and its effects on our communities become more apparent with every passing year. While there is still much that can and must be done to mitigate the range of impacts climate change might have, we are confronting the certainty of a crisis that will continue to unfold no matter what we do. What is the meaning of this extraordinary moment in human history? The meanings we construct about climate change affect how we think about it, our feelings about it and our willingness to take action. Portland State University instructor David Osborn leads a discussion exploring different meanings of climate change and how our understanding of meaning relates to action.
