Nancy Fowler for St. Louis Public Radio discusses how Marfa Dialogues/St. Louis came about, as well as how it is developing, and its end goal which “extends beyond getting people to talk about climate change.”

As Kristin Fleischmann Brewer, the Pulitzer’s manager of programs, explains:

“We hope it will produce action, where people will say, ‘OK, as an individual, how does my daily routine impact climate change and what can I do to change that on the smallest scale?’”

The deadline to enter the Marfa Dialogues competition and become a part of the events, which will run from July 30th until August 3rd, is this Monday, April 21st. Winners will not only receive $2,500, but also the opportunity to share their ideas and projects with a large audience.
