The Weston Communicating Climate Programme is back... and so is our masterclass series for environmental charities!
About this event
The recent COP26 summit saw a surge in both media coverage and public concern for climate change across all demographics. What did it teach us about the tools and tactics for effective public engagement? With the coming year being so important for driving action on the climate agenda, what opportunities are there for charity communicators?
In this online session, Climate Outreach, ITV and the Natural History Consortium will be sharing some of the communications and media highlights from COP26, and discussing what lies ahead for charities looking to engage audiences on the climate agenda this year.
Attendees will take away tangible learnings and sector insights to apply within their own organisations.
