We are now in week #4 of my undergraduate Environmental Communication Class at the University of Cincinnati in which I have required my 49 students (COMM and EVST students) to join IECA as part of the class.  I am assigning 10 "IECA Excursions" during the semester (see previous posts) in order to familiarize the students with IECA, our web site, members, and other assets, as well as helping students to understand the value of belonging to a professional organization in a particular field or area of study, work, or interest.

After returning from this month's COCE conference in Boulder CO, at which I heard a number of insightful papers addressed current trends and practices, I decided to launch a new project--a new edited volume that features work exploring theoretical, applied, and critical dimensions of community engagement in environmental decision making at local, regional, national, and global levels.  I have asked Gregg Walker (Oregon State University) and Kathleen Hunt (Iowa State University) to co-edit this project with me (thanks Gregg and Katie!).

I am sitting in a bagel shop in Boulder CO on a Saturday morning in June, having coffee and and a bagel, waiting for today's session of the 2015 Conference on Communication and Environment (COCE).  I expect that today, day three of the conference, will go as smoothly and be as inspiring as the first two days.  Kudos to the conference planners, as well as the International Environmental Communication Association as coordinating body.

 

I wanted to take a moment today to address IECA members, whether you are attending the COCE conference, perhaps for the first time, or are following via live streaming, or are spending today at home.

 

Here is my simple message for today:  Say "yes."
