Communicate is the UK’s annual conference for environmental communicators, a massively diverse community of professionals working across multiple sectors to share, inspire and engage people with environmental issues.
Hosted by Bristol Natural History Consortium from 1st-2nd November at Bristol Zoo Gardens, the theme of Communicate 2017 is Navigating Change. The conference will explore the same positive, practical, solutions based approach that drove the original ideas for Tools for Success, whilst embracing the context of the changing landscape that we are now working in.
Here are the top 5 reasons to join Communicate:
Cross sector networking – the conference is programmed to offer ample opportunities for both structured and open networking in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere including dedicated mingling space and a free gala networking dinner and drinks reception.
Key skills development – alongside high level discussion, Communicate hosts a unique programme of bespoke workshops and toolbox session focussed on practical skills, concepts and techniques that you can take back to your desk on Monday morning and include in your Personal Development Plan.
Inspiration from beyond the usual suspects – Communicate bring in speakers from outside the environmental sphere, with experts from the corporate, social mobility and media worlds bringing fresh ideas and techniques to environmental issues.
Cutting edge social research – working with ESRC and their academic partners, Communicate bring the latest in social and behavioural science research to inspire fresh, evidence based approaches to communication practice.
