Engaging the Public on Climate Change: Climate Outreach Training

April 7, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

£4.50 – £9.50

Do you want to gain skills and knowledge on Communicating Climate Change?

Do you want to reach new audiences?

George Marshall is an advisor to the World Bank, UNFCCC and has designed climate communications strategies for Wales, Canada, Colombia and India. Since 2010 George has led bespoke training to 20 local authorities in the UK plus workshops for many others through the Local Government Association. He is the author of two seminal books:
Carbon Detox (Hamlyn Gaia 2007 ) on personal lifestyle change and carbon counting, and
Don’t Even Think About It: Why Our Brains are Wired to Ignore Climate Change (Bloomsbury 2016) on the psychology of climate communications – described by The Guardian as “the most important book published on climate change in recent years”.

A fast-moving, interactive and fun workshop, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and discuss ideas in small groups.

Participants will:

  • Share findings from research and practical experience
  • Reflect on what makes effective public engagement
  • Review effective comms for reaching new audiences
  • Explore messaging around personal behaviour change.
