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.
What are FRANK Talks?
FRANK Talks are face-to-face conversations on ideas that matter. Attendees discuss issues of local and national importance in local libraries at a single-session 75-minute program, led by a humanities scholar/expert on the topic. FRANK Talks engage participants with important issues and provide 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. Topics can include: education, immigration, religion, civil rights, veterans and more.
