All UC ANR staff and academics are invited to join a webinar at 1:30 this afternoon for a “sneak peek” of a new video series about combatting climate change. The 30-minute webinar will introduce “Climate Change,” a six-episode series produced by the University of California communications team and slated for wide distribution later this week by Vox, a news and opinion website that is known for explanatory journalism.
The series features UC and non-UC experts sharing potential solutions to the global climate change threat. One of the episodes focuses on reducing food waste. The release of the video series coincides with recent efforts being made by UC and other organizations to highlight the importance of science and research.
The webinar will be broadcast on ReadyTalk at 1:30 p.m. today (April 18).

This experience definitely shows how a visual communications piece can pay dividends. Here is the video:
