By January 12, 2017Events

October 13, 2016 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

SNRE, Ford Commons

DotEarth blogger and NY Times journalist, Andy Revkin, will show how anyone can cut against the noise and overload the Web and become an effective online communicator, community builder with respect to climate change and other sustainability issues. The session will start with a high-speed tour of cutting-edge material on blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. The session will shift to workshop mode, as Revkin works with participants in live demonstrations to build their comfort level with these Web tools.

The workshop is capped at 40 students; Erb students have first dibs on spots.  Spaces are going quickly, so if you are interested, please register ASAP.  If you register, Andy Revkin asks that you please create a Twitter account ahead of time (if you do not already have one.)  He also asks that you glance at the following:
