FRANK Talks: Energy in an Uncertain World

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Foothills Branch Library
Roadrunner Room

Event Details

Energy can be made affordable, accessible, and sustainable for all Arizonans.  Energy is never just about technology, but about the values and ideals that a society has about its design and distribution.  But what will it take to achieve energy justice?  What are the values that are driving energy production and distribution in today’s world?   Join us for a FRANK Talk that looks at the state of Arizona to discuss the historical context of energy production, the current webs of energy that exist in the state, and some potential ideas, policies, programs, and technologies that will shape the production of energy in the future.  This discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Jennifer Richter, Arizona State University, School of Social Transformation and the School for the Future of Innovation in Society


FRANK Talks are face-to-face conversations on ideas that matter, engaging participants with important issues and providing the opportunity to put them in context, weigh facts, and consider different points of view. The goal of FRANK Talks is to inspire people to practice the skills of citizenship – to listen respectfully and engage thoughtfully with one another on important issues that affect our communities.  These programs are produced in partnership with Arizona Humanities and the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records.


All events at the Glendale Public Library are public, and participants may be photographed by the media and or City staff for future print and/or online publication.
