Communicating Climate Change is a workshop to improve your skills in creating messages that resonate and communicate about climate change and natural resource issues.

At this workshop hosted by the North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve Coastal Training Program and the University of South Carolina, you will learn about strategic framing, a research based approach to communication. Strategic framing helps to engage audiences in thinking productively about how they can participate in creating or supporting climate change solutions. Although this training will focus on climate change, the methods can be applied to any type of science communication.

Who Should Attend: Professionals who interact with the public, local government staff, scientists, and others who are responsible for communicating with policymakers or citizens about changing coastal conditions. Anyone engaged in community resilience, planning, conservation, education, or outreach from the public or private sectors. The course is approved for 3 continuing education CECs by the SCPEAC.

Location: Kimbel Lodge, Hobcaw Barony, 22 Hobcaw Road, Georgetown, SC, 29440

Cost: FREE

Resistration is required, and spaces are limited.
