Episode 9 – The Wendel Forum Launches New Half Hour Format

April 9, 2011

On April 2, 2011, we launched the inaugural episode in our new half hour format! 

Episode 9 of The Wendel Forum (originally aired on Green 960 AM radio, April 2, 2011) kicks off the show’s new half hour format.  Bill Acevedo interviews Blakely Atherton and Pic Walker of the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE).

The organization’s climate change education comes in the form of a multi-media “rocumentary” with live presentation that engages high school students around the country. Pic and Blakely discuss how this innovative nonprofit program not only educates high school students, but it inspires them to take personal action regarding climate change.  

They talk about how they originally identified a need to communicate acurate climate science information with high school students; the form, content and regional challenges associated with these lively presentations; and how they measure success.  They even share a short trailer (posted on YouTube) that showcases the program through presentation footage and audience testimonials.
