Environmental Communication: Research Into Practice - Online course
This course will explore how the most relevant research and theory from fields such as communication, psychology and political science can be used to improve the practice of environmental communication. We will examine how language, images, and media come together in advocacy and social marketing campaigns, and other forms of public participation for environmental protection. We will consider how environmental communication is used to accomplish practical goals, as well as how it affects people's perceptions of nature and environmental affairs. To do this we will use readings, examples, cases, mini lectures, discussions, and the insights of leaders in the field. Participants will work on environmental communication projects that are relevant to their specific interests.
In October of 2018 we are launch the first of three regional symposia on environmental communication. They will be held in Ottawa, Ontario; Portland, Maine; and Fresno, California. These will be a chance to see if there is a desire for regional training in environmental communication.
Launched in 2016, the IECA Webinar series aims to provide practitioners and other interested folks the chance to learn about and discuss key topics in the practice of environmental communication.
