PBS and Planet Forward

The spirit of change is in the air - literally. PBS has partnered with George Washington University Public Affairs Project, Nebraska Educational Telecommunications, Public Agenda and Sunburst Creative Productions and is taking submissions on how people think America’s energy future should be tackled at www.planetforward.org.

Planet Forward will be hosted by Frank Sesno, former CNN Washington Bureau Chief and the director of GW’s Public Affairs Project. On the Planet Forward Web site, Sesno encourages people to submit anything from a “photo to an op-ed to digital animation or even a poem.” It starts March 6th, so happy uploading!

Planet Forward’s audience will probably be a little less broad than your typical YouTube crowd. A panel of experts, scientists, policy-makers, business leaders and citizen journalists will watch and then discuss the best submissions during the show’s live broadcast on April 15, 2009.
