Eco Forum

Eco Forum
As part of its commitment to make important environmental issues more accessible for widespread public discussion, the Center inaugurated the Open Forum series in 1999. This series continues today as the Bard CEP Eco Forum, which hosts dialogues between the public and experts who can convey complete issues understandably to a lay audience, argue competing theories, and engage audience members as participants in debates. This past year the Eco Forum hosted three documentary film screenings with the filmmakers and traditional three panel discussions with experts from diverse stakeholder groups.
