Fostering effective and inspiring communication that alleviates environmental issues and conflicts, and solves the problems that cause them.
The 2017 Conference on Communication and Environment (COCE)
June 29 - July 2, 2017, University of Leicester
Please join us in England for the 14th biennial Conference on Communication and Environment. This event features the latest research and reflection–from both scholars and practitioners–on how we communicate around environmental issues and nature.
Our lineup of keynote speakers includes Natalie Bennett of the Green Party of England and Wales, Adam Corner of Climate Outreach, Roger Harrabin of the BBC, Sönke Lorenzen of Greenpeace International (and the IECA), Graham Murdock of Loughborough University, and Amanda Niode, the Indonesian President’s Special Envoy on Climate Change. In addition, we have an amazing programme of presentations, panels, workshops, posters and artwork.
The early-bird registration deadline is April 28, 2017, so now's the time to register. We hope to see you in Leicester.
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.
