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 is open for the September 2020 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.
COCE in Tasmania postponed until 2022.
In 2021 we will hold a virtual conference or series of smaller online events.
Due to expected travel restrictions resulting from COVID-19, our local hosts at the University of Tasmania in Hobart and the IECA Board of Directors have decided to postpone the in person conference in Australia for a year. In 2021 we will instead have a virtual conference. Please stay tuned for more details.
Both conferences will be for artists, practitioners, students and researchers. All will be welcome.
