22nd -24th February 2017: World Symposium on Climate Change Communication, Manchester, UK

Structure of the Event

The "World Symposium on Climate Change Communication” will be organised in two main strands:

Strand 1: the displays

Participants and organisations will be able to put-up poster displays describing their works and projects, and to distribute the relevant information to the participants. The poster displays will be the backbone of the event and will allow close, one-to-one contacts between the participants and the exhibitors.

Strand 2: the presentations
A set of presentations, divided into five main themes will be organised, distributed over parallel sessions dealing with some of the issues of strategic value in the field of climate change adaptation. These are:

  • Session 1: The theory of  climate change communication (this section includes literature reviews, psychological analyses, scholarly research and theoretical considerations on climate change communication)
  • Session 2: The practice of climate change communication (this section includes practical projects and education and training programmes and initiatives on climate change communication)

The plenary and parallel sessions, as well as the social events, will provide participants with an outstanding opportunity to interact, network and learn about the latest ideas, projects and practices..
