Roger Sorkin is an award-winning producer, writer, and director specializing in the nexus between environmental, energy, and national security. His latest independent film, The Burden, has been called “the most effective communications tool ever made for shifting the debate on clean energy as one of urgent national security.” He is an alumnus of the U.S. Army War College’s National Security Seminar and a fellow with the Truman National Security Project, where he also serves as a spokesperson for their Operation Free campaign.
Roger has served as a strategic communications advisor to the NATO Energy Security Centre of Excellence, and as a delegate to the Electricity Infrastructure Security Council. He began his career in broadcasting as the founding producer of a daily public affairs program in 1993, and then received a master of communication from Stanford University. His new project, Tidewater, employs an innovative ‘whole of media’ approach for facilitating critical decision-making on issues of environmental resilience, adaptation, and complex intergovernmental problem-solving.
