Maine Humanities Council to host Climate Change event on Oct. 24th

The Maine Humanities Council, in partnership with the Portland Museum of Art (PMA), the Gulf of Maine Research Institute, and the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center, is hosting a one-day forum called “Communicating Climate Change,” on Saturday, October 24 at PMA.


The day will focus, in a multi-disciplinary way, on how the issue’s framing (and those doing the framing) affect the way the public has reacted to it over time. The event includes a session by Professor Thomas Tracy, a religious studies and philosophy scholar from Bates College, and he will spend some time focusing on how moral and religious resources can help us to find hope in the face of challenging news.

Cost: $20, includes refreshments and same-day admission to the Portland Museum of Art. For more details and to register, click here:
