Environmental Communication:
Research Into Practice

"This isn’t just another course on effective communication. It’s not about how to write compelling copy or design a stunning advocacy ad. It’s deeper than that.

This course will help you to understand the unique and sometimes near-impossible challenges of communicating well around environmental affairs and sustainability.

We’ll show you 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."
