Media and the Environment Communicating about Santa Barbara’s Ocean, Air and Land
APCD worked with the UCSB Carsey-Wolf Center to present student projects at a Free Public Presentation and Discussion that was held March 18, 2008 at the Faulkner Gallery, in the Santa Barbara Public Library.
University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) students presented projects developed with and for local environmental agencies, including communications projects for APCD that addressed attitudes about car-free transportation, awareness of smoke and dust events, and use of new media to communicate about air quality subjects.
Other projects included: student films funded by the UCSB Associated Students Coastal Fund on issues facing coastal and marine habitats along the UCSB shoreline; and research and recommendations on communication with businesses and schools to increase recycling efforts sponsored by the Santa Barbara Environmental Services Division. Film-makers, project writers, and project coordinators encouraged audience comments and questions.
The event was presented by: the UCSB Carsey-Wolf Center for Film, Television, and New Media; the UCSB Environmental Research Focus Group of the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center; the UCSB Departments of Communication and Film & Media Studies; the UCSB Associated Students Coastal Fund; APCD; and the Santa Barbara Environmental Services Division.
