½ day, online event – Learn to Communicate About Nature

Date: October 19th, 9:20am – 1:00pm | Event tickets here

So much of the communication we receive about the nature and climate change crisis is issues-based, stats heavy, and full of doom and gloom. Common thinking has been that scaring people with the facts will catalyse action. After 40 years of this, it’s becoming clear that this is not the case – instead of action, it’s leading to feelings of helplessness and apathy.

So how can we communicate in a way that encourages action, not despair?
The answer is the inspiration for this event. Bringing together communication experts from environmental psychology, neuroscience, and behaviour change, we offer you four different perspectives on ‘communication that inspires action’. Interactive masterclasses will equip you with the practical knowledge and skills to better motivate climate and nature action.

What will you learn?

  • How to communicate about the nature and climate crisis effectively
  • New tools to engage people and inspire positive action
  • The benefits of new ways of communicating
