This Thriving Online weekly public communication brainstorm will focus on tools and tactics for withstanding online harassment, and also on how to be a productive bystander in the social media environment, which remains full of both promise and peril.
The main guest this week is Viktorya Vilk, the director of digital safety and free expression programs at PEN America.
On Mondays, 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.
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.
