Join Professor Rob Fowler, one of the nation’s leading experts on environmental law, and his daughter Erin Fowler, an award winning choreographer, artist, and arts educator, in a discussion around how art and family connections can become a framework to discuss and engage with the climate crisis across generations. Erin and Rob will share their perspectives on optimism and pessimism (and where they may or may not overlap), the place of hope in current times, and what each other's environmental/climate change-focused projects have meant for each other, and the whole family.
