We are proud to announce the program of the conference “How to talk about the environment? Heroes/heralds and environmental communication”, organised on 9, 10 and 11 December 2020, at a distance (the link to follow the conference is indicated in the program and on the website of the conference): https://ger-cess-2020.sciencesconf.org/data/pages/Programme.pdf

This conference proposes to analyse the communication mechanisms and the facets of the desire for mobilisation carried by the heralds, professionals or not of communication and heroes, environmental heroes, ordinary heroes or environmental activists. Papers and speeches will be held in French or English.

The participation to the conference is free of charge.

The conference is organized by the Study and Research Group "Communication, Environment, Science and Society" (https://comenvironnement.hypotheses.org/ ).

This conference is an international one, and we are very pleased to announce that it has been a great success with our scientific communities: we have more than forty papers selected in French and English.

We also had a lot of support from the professional community engaged in responsible communication: all our guests accepted to participate in the round tables with enthusiasm and are eager to answer your questions.

Our organizing committee had to make a number of important choices to remain in the spirit, despite the distance, of what the organizing Study and Research Group wanted: an open, broad-based scientific symposium where ideas and questions merge and forge links.

We have therefore kept a large space for discussion and exchange by deciding to leave our virtual rooms open for virtual coffee breaks. You will be able to exchange as much as you like.

Several workshops in parallel prevent us from following the entire conference: we will therefore open a channel on canal U (a media of the University of Aix-Marseille) where we will submit all the papers of the researchers and the round tables.

We look forward to meeting you (at a distance) very soon.
