The view from America: Who controls the conversation about the environment?

The view from America: Who controls the conversation about the environment?

Our thinking about the looming ecological catastrophe and its prevention is shaped, to a large extent, by eco-activists and... large corporations. Will the latter manage to reduce our concern for the environment to consumer choices? We invite you to a discussion on the American experience of treating the environment as a battlefield. We will talk about abuses of persuasion in this realm, such as greenwashing, in connection with Mads Ellesøe's films "The Campaign Against the Climate" and Werner Boote's "The Green Lie."

Participants:

  • Beata Faracik - president of the Polish Institute for Human Rights and Business
  • Ryan Kaminski - Global Public Policy Lead, World Benchmarking Alliance
  • Jan Kisielewski - business communication and cultural trends analyst

Moderator:

  • Anna Tatarska - film and cultural journalist

Discussion in English 

The recording of the discussion is available on WATCH DOCS Facebook page.
