In this entertaining presentation, illustrated with a wide selection of amusing clips, Professor Chris Palmer makes the case that not only can comedy be an effective way to get viewers’ attention, but, paradoxically, laughter can also inspire people to take conservation and environmental issues more seriously.

Chris will also screen the winners of this year’s Eco-Comedy Video Competition sponsored by the AU’s Center for Environmental Filmmaking and the Sierra Club.

Reception at 6:30PM.
