The world is awash in environmental crises and their magnitude overwhelms many of us. This session will look at how writers can use their skills to shine a light on the darkness of human futures, whether by exposing environmental misdeeds or highlighting sustainable alternatives.
Chris Benjamin has studied, reported, and acted on environmental issues since the late 90s. He was the “Sustainable City” columnist for The Coast from 2008 to 2013. His 2011 book, Eco-Innovators: Sustainability in Atlantic Canada, won the Best Atlantic-Published Book Award and was a finalist for the Evelyn Richardson Non-Fiction Prize. He writes regular environmental features for Halifax Magazine and Saltscapes.
