Where Activism Meets Technological Innovation: The Challenge of Environmental Problem Solving -- Pace Academy

Advocacy and technology have each played a part in our environmental successes and failures to date, but to what degree should each be leveraged as we face new environmental challenges? Has advocacy lost its way? Is technology a blessing, curse, or both? This roundtable discussion will explore the relative value of advocacy and technology as well the notion that a union of the two may be our only way forward.
