Thriving Online - A Weekly Workshop

June 22, 2020
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
On Mondays from 4-5 p.m. US Eastern Time, longtime journalist, author and educator Andy Revkin hosts an open workshop testing paths to impact and sanity in an online information environment that is more overheated, and more important, than ever. On June 22, 4-5 p.m. the inaugural workshop kicks off with an exploration of your concerns and questions about social media and web communication, along with a chat with Craig A. Spencer, who directs Global Health in Emergency Medicine at Columbia University Medical School and is an E.R. doctor. Spencer is best known for surviving an Ebola infection several years ago and writing a wrenching diary of the darkest hours of New York City's COVID-19 surge. He'll be joined by Isabeau Doucet, a producer, storyteller and visual artist who is a founding member of AJ+, the digital branch of Al Jazeera Media Network and helped create an animated version of Spencer's story. Revkin is the founding director of Columbia University's Earth Institute Initiative on Communication and Sustainability, which works to boost the capacity of scientists, journalists, educators, students and citizens to communicate in ways that can speed progress toward a more sustainable relationship between our species, our planet and each other.
