You do not need to be an expert or a scientist: you do need to be good at talking, presenting and listening. Work will be done in small groups to build your confidence and ensure the course meets your needs.
This popular course has been updated in early 2010 to take into account current concerns over scientific data, the next steps after Copenhagen, and the need to communicate positive futures as well as potential problems.
The training session will cover:
- Why good communication of climate change is so important.
- Ways to answer the difficult questions around current climate change issues and data.
- Learn about target audiences, key drivers and current segmentation methodology.
- Communicating with people in different situations: persuading colleagues – lobbying situations – talking to friends – working with business – addressing a large audience.
- Engaging and communicating with diverse organisations.
- Practice delivering persuasive messages and a chance to receive feedback.
