Conversation on Climate Change
Portland State University instructor David Osborn leads an online conversation about the different meanings of climate change and how our understanding of meaning relates to our action in addressing this concern. The event takes place on Thursday, Jan. 20, at 7 p.m. Sponsors are the Oregon Humanities Conversation Project, Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, and Lower Nehalem Community Trust.
David Osborn is a faculty member at Portland State University, where he teaches courses on the Pacific Northwest, place, identity and social change. He participates in social movements and is currently involved in the climate justice movement at a local and international level. He is interested in how we construct meaning concerning ecological and social crises and how we might apply wisdom traditions and contemplative practices to further community-based social change.
