The new multi-platform Green Majority TV offers students the opportunity to learn about the latest environmental issues through the show’s “crowd-funded approach.”

“The ultimate goal is to promote consideration of environmental issues in a way that doesn’t require ‘buying in’ to some sort of deep green worldview or ideology,” said Daryn Caister, owner of Green Majority media. “Instead we make practical arguments that we think everyone can agree are important.”

Using a mixture of journalism, education and analysis on environmental topics, students and over 50,000 Canadians tune in every week to their radio show on CIUT 89.5FM, and podcast. Students can also follow Green Majority TV through videos on YouTube or by visiting their website www.greenmajority.ca.

Green Majority TV translates new information about environmental issues and innovations every week, and according to Caister, “students with content ideas, suggestions for guests and/or topics,” are always welcome to join Green Majority’s shows.

“Green Majority TV is free to all. The main outcome of our work however is 100 per cent free and produced as a public service. The suggested membership is $5 a month, however, it can be $1 to $100 a month depending how much each person wants to contribute,” said Caister.

Stephanie Foster, sustainability co-ordinator for George Brown’s green team says this show, “sounds like a great way to communicate and engage people around environmental issues.”
