PresidioSocial: The Audacity of Hopenhagen

Title

Tuesday September 15th

It’s Hopenhagen Time!


The Commonwealth Club Presents:

  • Adam Werbach, CEO, Saatchi & Saatchi S
  • Seth Farbman, Managing Director, Ogilvy & Mather
  • Jon Krosnick, Professor of Communication and Political Science, Stanford University
  • Greg Dalton, Founder, Climate One

What do people around the world think about the threat of climate change and the promise of a new clean economy? Are they informed about the international negotiations in Copenhagen? If clean energy doesn’t become a kitchen table issue, will the negotiations succeed? Some of the world’s biggest advertising companies are putting aside their rivalries to collaborate on a new global campaign – Hopenhagen – about the hope of a green and prosperous future. Will they have any impact? How can they reach people outside the “environmental elite?” Experts discuss what’s at stake.
