Conference to explore how environmental issues can be alleviated through effective communication
Environmental issues and how they can be alleviated through effective communication will be explored during a prestigious conference hosted at our University between 29 June and 2 July.
The conference is the 14th biennial Conference on Communication and Environment run by the International Environmental Communication Association (IECA) in collaboration with our School of Media, Communication and Sociology.
The conference theme, ‘Democracy, Borders and Public/Political Engagement: Challenges for Environmental Communication’, is particularly important in light of the challenges to environmental policy and protection arising from political changes in the US, in the UK and Europe, and elsewhere in recent times.
Anders Hansen, Associate Professor in the University of Leicester’s School of Media, Communication and Sociology, who is organising the event, said: “The conference brings together leading environmental communication scholars and practitioners from around the world for four days of presentations and discussions about how best to address the key challenges facing the environment and environmental communication in these times of rapidly shifting political landscapes.”
The conference will take place at our University between 29 June and 2 July.
