EVENT: Planet Detroit Panel + Conversation

October 17, 2019 | Room Project 6513 Woodward Ave Detroit, MI 48202

WHAT ARE DETROIT'S ESSENTIAL LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL STORIES?
Panel + Conversation
Thursday, October 17
6 pm–8 pm


The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and the climate we live in are fundamental to our health, safety, and ability to thrive. Understanding what is happening in our local environment is critical for each of us. So what are Detroit's essential environmental stories? How are they being told? Who is telling them? And what are the solutions?

Those questions will be explored in a panel discussion hosted and moderated by Planet Detroit. We're bringing together local journalists and advocates for a conversation on how we can better share information and best tell the essential environmental stories of our city, our region, and our time.

Moderators:
Nina Ignaczak and Brian Allnutt, Planet Detroit
