Reaching beyond the choir (Wed April 11, 11:45-12:30)

Climate change demands a response across society, from people of all ages, faiths, nationalities and sides of the political spectrum. Public engagement underpins all climate solutions - and yet most climate change communication is not only ineffective but counterproductive, working only for the minority of people who consider themselves environmentalists.

Climate Outreach’s team of social scientists and communication specialists work with organisations to help them communicate about climate change in ways that resonate with the values of their audiences and inspire them to action.

Join Leane de Laigue, Head of Communications at Climate Outreach, to hear about how we’re reaching beyond the choir, in particular through our work with centre-right audiences and our Climate Visuals project.
