Antioch University Santa Barbara hosted a crowded public forum presented by the Santa Barbara Permaculture Network on Thursday, January 28, 2016 with Ethan Stewart, a reporter with the Santa Barbara Independent, who reported from on the 2015 Paris Climate Conference in December.
While at the conference, Ethan provided daily coverage through the Independent, covering official events as well as behind-the-scenes discussions and meetings with non-governmental organizations, officials, activists, and concerned citizens.

During the forum, Ethan displayed photographs by the Independent’s Kodiak Greenwood and recounted their experience covering the conference in Paris.
In addition to Ethan, the discussion will include a panel of community members with backgrounds in local government, business, education, faith-based organizations, and activism. David Fortson, CEO of LoaTree, served as facilitator for the panel, and Dr. Dawn Murray, the Chair of AUSB’s Bachelor of Arts program and a marine biologist, made remarks at the beginning of the forum. Dr. Murray’s Environmental Studies students attended the discussion.
“We are all a part of the solution,” Dr. Murray said. “Come and learn more about our community efforts and connect to the global movement.”
