An environmental lawyer, a filmmaker and the head of a college debate program are an odd trio, but this month the three will bring their talents to Missouri State University in an attempt to raise environmental awareness. KSMU’s Justin Lux has the story.
Matt Vega, Jeffrey Johnson and Troy Payne joined together in 2009 to create what is now known as Black Lantern Synergy. A group dedicated to spreading a more personal message of how to care for the earth.
On September 14th in MSU’s Plaster Student Union Theater the group will perform a multimedia presentation that they created together. Payne is a 2000 MSU graduate who currently resides in Portland, Oregon. He is the environmental lawyer in the group.“We try to take a lot of the really great ideas that are being kicked around in environmental literature and bring it down to a level that is commonly understood,” Payne says.
He also says that the group thinks this exercise can get people to look at the world in a different way, which will hopefully create more awareness-- not just for the environment, but for greater humanity as well.
Payne says the multimedia presentation will address environmental ethics in a way that steers clear of the traditional academic perspective.
