Stand Up for EVs


September 27, 2022
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Event Category:

Celebrate National Drive Electric Week, have a laugh, and learn how to engage your neighbors, friends, and co-workers around electric vehicles and clean energy. Research across disciplines shows that comedy is uniquely persuasive and attention-getting when it comes to serious issues like climate. Join Generation180 staff and hear how members of our Climate Comedy Cohort (co-directed with CMSI’s GoodLaugh) leverage humor as a strategy to change the climate narrative from doom and gloom to “we’ve got this!” Climate fellows will share what works and what doesn’t when it comes to shifting how people see their role in clean energy.

Time: Sept. 27, 2022 07:00 PM EDT
