How do we talk about and frame sustainability issues without frightening or alienating the very people we need to reach? How do we move people from belief and opinion to action? Governments, non-profits and businesses—even individuals—have trouble communicating about sustainability and climate. For the past 20 years, statistics have shown that fewer and fewer Americans rank climate as an important issue. Come hear about the latest research in what works (and what doesn’t) when talking about sustainable behavior and climate issues.

Leslie Carlson of Carlson Communications works with public agencies and sustainable businesses to help promote behavior change for climate, thoughtful consumption, sustainable products and other sustainability-related areas. Some of her clients include the Northwest Earth Institute, the Oregon Department of Transportation, the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development, the Oregon Department of Health Services, the Oregon Global Warming Commission, the City of Portland, and Practice Greenhealth (a national sustainable health care member organization).


Please RSVP to Stefanie Slyman at stefanies@hhpr.com by March 6. Join us afterward for complimentary beverages and snacks, networking and fun at the Buffalo Gap, 6835 SW Macadam Ave.
