_E3Q8492 lo.jpg

We’re organising the World Symposium on Climate Change Communication, to be held in central Manchester on 22-24 February 2017, organised jointly with Prof Walter Leal of Manchester Metropolitan University. The conference is aimed at everyone interested in how we can  communicate and engage people effectively on climate change: its causes, impacts and links to collective and personal behaviour. The conference aims to:

  1. provide research institutions, universities, NGOs, cultural institutions, government and development aid agencies and enterprises from across the world with an opportunity to display and present their works in the field of climate change communication.
  2. to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of climate change communication initiatives and projects, especially successful initiatives and good practice across the world.
  3. to discuss methodological approaches and experiences deriving from case studies and projects, which aim to show how climate change communication may be implemented in practice.
  4. to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities for cooperation.

The conference is international, and a wide spread of perspectives and approaches are especially welcomed, from any related discipline. The conference is aimed at researchers, NGOS, funding agencies, and practitioners working in the field of climate change engagement in the broadest sense, including educators, curators and government agencies.

We have a call for papers and other presentations open now until 30th October.

If you’re interested, come along.
