The International Environmental Communication Association
About The IECA
The IECA is a professional nexus of practitioners, teachers, scholars, students, artists and organizations engaged in research and action to find more ethical and effective ways to communicate about environmental concerns in order to move society towards sustainability.
Our mission is to foster effective and inspiring communication that alleviates environmental issues and conflicts, and solves the problems that cause them.
Registration will open in October 2021 for the January 2022 session of 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.
Re-MEDIAting the Wild
The 16th Conference on Communication and Environment (COCE) “as you’ve never seen it before”
June 21-24, 2021, online everywhere
The International Environmental Communication Association (IECA) will hold the 16th Conference on Communication and Environment (COCE) online everywhere in June 2021. This conference will mark IECA's 10th anniversary. As always, we will bring together artists, practitioners, scholars, students and engaged citizens from around the world to discuss the state of communication related to environmental affairs. We consider Indigenous perspectives to be central to this topic and therefore especially encourage the participation of Indigenous People.
