Communicators have a considerable role to play in shaping how society responds to the challenges we face and inspiring people to act. Despite growing awareness amongst the public, misinformation about climate change is still widely reported. Grounding your communications in science is one of the best ways to tackle misinformation while also ensuring that you are delivering credible and engaging content.
This half-day course, delivered by the Royal Meteorological Society, is designed to empower communicators by providing the fundamental knowledge and tools to engage audiences in climate change and advise senior leaders within your organisations.
