We need to change the way we communicate about the nature and climate crisis. For the past few decades, the default has been issues-based communication - science and stats heavy, often with doom and gloom narratives . Common thinking has been that this kind of approach will scare people into action. But it's becoming clear that this is not working: rather than inspiring climate-positive change, it more often leads to feelings of powerlessness and information overload.

So how can we communicate about nature and climate in a way that inspires action, not despair?

This innovative half-day virtual event will bring together communication experts to share their insights and tools for an approach to nature and climate communication that catalyses change.

This event will help you:

  • Learn how to communicate about the nature and climate crisis creatively and effectively
  • Learn new tools to engage people and inspire action
  • Understand the benefits of new ways of communicating

Event Overview

The first part of our event will feature talks and Q+A sessions from a range of climate change and communication specialists. Our speakers will be drawing on insights from diverse fields including stakeholder dialogue and engagement, behavioural science, neuroscience, and professional coaching.

In the second part of the session, interactive masterclasses with our speakers will provide deeper insights and the practical knowledge and skills to help you inspire positive change.

Thank you so much for sharing this Mitchell I will definitely take a look! I have just moved the sign-up link to an easier location so everyone can see it better. 

It would be great if you could add the date and time of the event as well as any costs involved. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing, Mitchell! I agree that scare tactics are frequently ineffectual and that there are many more productive ways to bring people together around an issue.

Hi @Mitchell Rae pleased to meet you and congratulations for this event! Unfortunately for some reason it slipped under my radar but I'd love to know how it went. I too dedicate my efforts to communicating about climate and nature in ways that are engaging, effective and positive. Hopefully we can meet at one of the WH Socials some time to chat further.

Hi Alan, thanks for your message. I've just realised that this account was still in Mitchell's name (he originally set it up for the business, but has since moved on from the company).

The event went really well, although there was so much to be said and not enough time! People have expressed an interest in a further event to dive a bit deeper into these topics. We do have a recording and resources from our event in Oct. At the moment we've only shared these with ticket holders, but will release more widely in the future. If you'd like to sign up to our newsletter, you will hear about resources being shared, or if we are planning a further event. Just drop us an email at admin@dialoguematters.co.uk if you'd like to be added to the mailing list (quarterly newsletters and v. occasional announcements). 

Thanks,
Imogen
