Town Hall highlights environment

BY Anne Zukowski (’18)

TV Marywood (TVM) hosted its third and final Town Hall for the spring semester, this one devoted to environmental issues.

If you missed my previous post about MMG (Marywood Media Group) hosting Town Halls, the purpose of these Town Halls is to invite community and campus members to ask professional panelists professionals questions critical social issues. The broadcasts, under the umbrella theme of “Forming a More Perfect Union,” have been sponsored by the Pacers for Justice & Peace, a group of Marywood faculty and staff.

Previous Town Hall broadcast topics focused on immgration and gender equality. During each broadcast, the panelists discuss questions from live audience members and inquiries submitted through social media.


In the control room, students direct the final TVM Town Hall of the semester on environmental issues.

For each of the Town Halls, Alex Weidner served as moderator, directing the live audience’s questions on each topic to the panels, which, over the course of the three broadcasts, were composed of outside experts in various fields and members of Marywood’s faculty.

By hosting the Town Hall series, the TVM crew had a chance to polish its professional skills during a live broadcast, while informing the Marywood community and the general public about evolving issues affecting a broad range of society.

You can find the episode on environmental issues on the TV-Marywood’s Facebook page.
