Roberta Laurie: How we talk about sustainability matters

Sustainability is gaining popularity in recent years, but how we actually discuss sustainability as a society is not something that is given a lot of thought. Environmental issues are often an inherent part of everyday conversation, with little regard for the ways that diction can change the narrative. Roberta Laurie is a professor at MacEwan University with a Masters in Environmental Communication and a passion for sustainable practices. She discusses what sustainability actually means and how it is being used on an individual level as well as for business strategy. Roberta also touches on her new communication course for the winter of 2018 called ‘Foundations of Sustainability Communication’ where she will teach students some more in-depth components of communicating about sustainability issues.
