Can Seattle Save the World http://www.kplu.org en Seattle still wants to save the world http://www.kplu.org/post/seattle-still-wants-save-world <p>We hope you figured out long ago that the title of KPLU&#39;s &quot;Can Seattle Save the World? (Poverty, Health and Chocolate)&quot; event was <a href="http://humanosphere.kplu.org/2011/04/new-and-improved-and-more-inclusive-can-seattle-save-the-world/">tongue-firmly-in-cheek</a>, but also meant to raise some important questions. There&#39;s a <a href="http://humanosphere.kplu.org/2011/04/preview-of-the-issues-can-seattle-save-the-world/">serious debate</a> about the meaning and priority of &quot;health&quot; in &quot;global health.&quot;</p><p>The event itself, last Tuesday, proved so popular that we moved it to a room three times larger than originally planned -- and nearly packed the room. Not to toot our horn too much, but immediate feedback was enthusiastic. &quot;Do it again,&quot; was the most common response.</p><div><p>We&#39;d love to. In the meantime, we are belatedly offering a replay -- video from the event.</p><p><strong><a href="http://humanosphere.kplu.org/2011/05/seattle-still-wants-to-save-the-world/">Read More: </a></strong> Mon, 02 May 2011 16:33:50 +0000 Keith Seinfeld 1446 at http://www.kplu.org Seattle still wants to save the world Join the discussion on the "Can Seattle Save the World?" forum http://www.kplu.org/post/join-discussion-can-seattle-save-world-forum <p><a href="http://humanosphere.kplu.org/2011/04/preview-of-the-issues-can-seattle-save-the-world/" target="_blank">The forum</a> begins at 7 p.m. at Town Hall Seattle, but you can join in the conversation right now using the <a href="http://www.twitter.com">Twitter</a> hashtag <a href="http://twitter.com/search?q=%23SEAsaves">#SEAsaves</a>.</p><p><script src="http://widgets.twimg.com/j/2/widget.js"></script><script> new TWTR.Widget({ version: 2, type: 'search', search: '#SEAsaves', interval: 6000, title: 'Live tweets from #SEAsaves event:', subject: 'Can Seattle Save the World?', width: 'auto', height: 200, theme: { shell: { background: '#002057', color: '#ffffff' }, tweets: { background: '#ffffff', color: '#444444', links: '#1985b5' } }, features: { scrollbar: true, loop: true, live: true, hashtags: true, timestamp: true, avatars: true, toptweets: true, behavior: 'default' } }).render().start(); </script></p><p>KPLU&#39;s <a href="http://www.kplu.org/people/charla-bear">Charla Bear</a> will also be live blogging below (and at <a href="http://humanosphere.kplu.org/">Humanosphere</a>), starting at 7 p.m.</p><p><iframe frameborder="0" height="440px" scrolling="no" src="http://www.coveritlive.com/index2.php/option=com_altcaster/task=viewaltcast/altcast_code=2640107f8a/height=440/width=440" width="440">&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;a data-cke-saved-href=&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;http://www.coveritlive.com/mobile.php/option=com_mobile/task=viewaltcast/altcast_code=2640107f8a&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot; href=&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;http://www.coveritlive.com/mobile.php/option=com_mobile/task=viewaltcast/altcast_code=2640107f8a&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;Can Seattle Save The World?&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;</iframe></p><p> Wed, 27 Apr 2011 01:05:54 +0000 Justin Steyer 1273 at http://www.kplu.org
