The ECREA Science and Environment Communication Section and the IAMCR Environment, Science and Risk Communication Working Group have the pleasure to invite you to a webinar themed “When the Local meets the Digital” where environmental communication scholars gather to present work and discuss implications and consequences of the ‘digital turn’ in our field. All presenters at the webinar have submitted accepted abstracts for an edited volume on the same theme. Apart from hearing them talk about their work we will have a chance to discuss each contribution briefly.

The webinar is planned to take place on Thursday the 15 March at 14.00 to 16.00 (Central European Time= UTC +1) and is free of charge and open to all. In order to participate you only visit this website which has all information needed, including the full schedule and name of presenters etcetera You also need a computer, internet access and a head set (very important!) to be able to participate. We advise all participants to check the equipment and website well before the webinar starts.

Most welcome and hope to see many of you then!
