Communicate 2014: Changing stories in a changing world
Bea López attended the “Communicate” conference last week, held in the European Capital of Culture 2015 . For the occasion, 150 environmental communicators came together at At-Bristol science centre for two days of inspirational sessions, challenging discussions, practical workshops and outstanding networking opportunities. The conference opened with a showcase of the perfect problem: how to communicate the urgency of required action with environmental issues (like climate change!) that are perceived as distant in both time and locality, costly to prevent and uncertain in their effects. Following a series of thought provoking parallel workshops, delegates regrouped to share their own stories as a lively demonstration of the latest campaigns, communication innovations and practical insights. Can it get more inspiring than that?
