More about the webinar
This ‘earthcast’ will give practical insights into how to develop more effective climate change communication and behaviour change strategies. It will present some of the challenges and opportunities for engaging the public with climate change, but also consider the limits to public engagement with climate change. The earthcast will also cover:
- How unconscious values match to attitudes and beliefs that can be used to design action on climate change
- How NGOs could change their strategy on climate change and the UNFCCC
- Different roles the public can play in tackling climate change
- Behaviour change strategies for encouraging sustainable lifestyles and communities
- Messages about climate change that engage the public (and those that don’t)
