Environmental Communication:
Research Into Practice

This course will help you to understand what's distinct about environmental communication and why it's not necessarily the same as other types of public interest or political communication. We'll consider the unique and difficult challenges of communicating well around environmental affairs and sustainability. We’ll explore why much environmental communication today is not as effective as it could be, and is all too often counter-productive. And we’ll give you the information and critical perspective you need to make better communication choices.

Early Bird Registration Deadline is December 18, 2016

IECA webinar on Green Celebrities

greencelebrities.jpgPlease join us in launching the IECA webinar series on the 15th of December at 17:00 (CET) (11:00 EST for the US). This free webinar will focus on the issue of Green Celebrities.

In the past decade environmental NGOs have increasingly tried to raise their profiles amidst frenetic global mediascapes, the growth of consumer culture and the continued mainstreaming of ecological issues (sustainable or not), and the celebritisation of politics. One popular strategy civil society organizations employed, has been to engage influencers and celebrities of different standing, that support green issues and/or lifestyles. How effective are these strategies? Do they support or cannibalize public perception of the organizations involved.
