Workshop on the Transition to a Conserver Society: The Role of the Media (March 21-23, 1974)
In March of 1974, a conference was held to advise the Ontario Educational Communications Authority (OECA) on the nature of future global problems (energy use, population growth, economic and technological expansion). Participants were asked to examine conflicting interpretations of these problems and the assumptions on which the viewpoints are based, and to debate the role of educational media in shaping future world opinion. Participants were first asked to define areas of convergence and divergence in their own opinions and then to reflect on the following questions: whether the educational media should be subordinant to, an observer of, or a catalyst for world opinion; and whether the media has an obligation to show models of optimal use of world resources. Finally the group was asked to make recommendations for the future policies of the OECA. (EMH)
