Ben and Jerry Save the World
Ben & Jerry are best known for creating one of the world’s most famous ice cream companies, but their work spans far beyond ice cream. They continue to facilitate a multitude of campaigns for social justice, political change, sustainable business, and grassroots empowerment. During this event, our students asked the founders of Ben & Jerry’s what drives them to devote their time to the public good, what they envision as effective communication when it comes to activism, and how we can learn from them to be more engaged in our communities- locally, nationally, and internationally.
Thank you to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield for sharing their wisdom (and ice cream) with the students of the Department of Communication at Georgia State University!
