Conversations On the Green is proud to announce we’re planning a full 2020 season, six to eight shows with many of the country’s most provocative thinkers, most influential voices and most stimulating headliners.

 

But in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, all the programs will be virtual, allowing everyone to participate from the safety and comfort of their home, no matter where it’s located. All you need is a device that connects to the internet.

 

Our season opener, May 17, 2020 at 3pm, “Life After COVID-19: A Brave New World,” will examine how the pandemic will transform the country’s economic, political, social and cultural landscapes. 

 

We’re thrilled to announce that the trio of extraordinary panelists who will share their vision of the post-coronavirus world includes:

 

  • The historian Douglas Brinkley, the author of more than a dozen books

  • The bioethicist Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a leading voice on devising COVID-19 policy and Vice Provost for Global Initiatives at the University of Pennsylvania 

  • NY Times Columnist Nicholas Kristof, an internationally renowned humanitarian.

 

Our second event, on May 31st, will be "The Politics of Justice” and will focus on threats to the rule of law. It will be headlined by MSNBC analyst Joyce Vance, a former U.S. Attorney and a nationally known scholar of the American legal system, and, we hope, Preet Bharara, the former prosecutor and legal author, among others. And in June, we’ll have “Democracy In Color” with noted television commentators Joy Reed, Maya Wiley, and Dr. Jason Johnson. 

 

You can join these and the rest of the season's conversations on any of your electronic devices - we’ll send you precise instructions on how to sign up for the programs in the days before each event. We’ll be using a private Vimeo channel that allows us to live stream our programs safely and without interruption. 

 

And like last year, CPTV will broadcast a one-hour version of each show three times. But this year CPTV also will make the program available to every PBS station in the country.

Conversations On the Green is proud of our full 2020 season featuring Conversations with many of the country’s most provocative thinkers, influential voices, and inspiring headliners.

UPCOMING CONVERSATIONS: 

Our Season Finale October 25: The Soul of America: History's Lessons in Hope with Jon Meacham. 

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, all the programs will be livestreamed with a chat room for safe and interactive audience participation. No matter where you are you can join the Conversation - all you need is a device connected to the internet. 

CPTV will broadcast a one-hour version of each show three times after the livestream event.

After this broadcast, the Conversations will be available to watch here and listen to as a podcast.

Join us in this exciting new format, promoting education through meaningful discourse!

Since the Kardashians became America’s royalty – famous for being, well, famous – celebrity has defined the country’s culture, an essential element to win power and influence. Donald Trump took celebrity to new heights, using it to become the most powerful man in the world. Now a new generation of luminaries is coming of age. Who are they? What do they have in common? What do they tell us about the country’s direction and its future? Those questions are the focus of Common Ground with Jane Whitney’s sixth show.

We’re the first generation to feel the sting of climate change, and we’re the last that can do something about it” has become something of a cliché, a summary of the existential threat posed by global warming. As climate change moves from an imminent peril to a deadly reality for vast swaths of the country, a panel of nationally recognized groundbreakers discuss the gaping dichotomy between what scientists say needs to be done to moderate an impending disaster and the political reality of what is possible.
