What does environmental communication look like?

Warning: This is going to get a bit meta.

Ever since launching the IECA website 7 years ago, one question has pursued me. What does environmental communication look like?

Visitors to the site will be very familiar with the image of the green phone box in the countryside that decorates the home page. You might even be a bit tired of it :-)

Well, change is coming. We will soon be working on an overdue update to the IECA website. We will be re-theming (changing the look) of the site. And we will be making it mobile-friendly by using a responsive design. At the same time, we want to add some new images.

So, how can we show environmental communication in action? I don't mean how to show environmental issues like climate change, air pollution, forest plunder, etc. No, this is meta. How can we show communication about those and other environmental issues?

Reflections on IECA's Online Environmental Communication Course

I have just finished up grading and other final tasks for the January 10-week session of IECA's online course Environmental Communication: Research Into Practice. I almost called it the Winter session, but I am not sure we had winter here in the northeast US and I know it wasn't winter in other parts of the world where some of the participants live.

Communication for the Commons: Revisiting Participation and Environment

In case you didn't notice in the run-up to the 2015 Conference on Communication and Environment (COCE) this past June, The IECA has released a new publication. Communication for the Commons: Revisiting Participation and Environment is an anthology of selected papers from the 2013 Conference on Communication and Environment that was held in Uppsala, Sweden.
