Wednesday, June 24, 2020. 1:00 PM. Webinar: Transformational Communications: Increasing Government Ambition in Public Engagement on Climate Change. George Marshall, Climate Outreach. Sponsored by BECC. More information here.
Governments have failed to effectively engage people on the issue of climate change, even 30 years after committing in the Framework Convention to inform and educate their citizens about this critical issue. Today, people are still disturbingly ill-informed about what is causing climate change, how urgent it is, and how it will impact their lives. So, how do we assert people’s legal (and moral) right to know, and how can we transform our approach to engagement in order to overcome polarization and build a broad-based public mandate to support action? Our speaker, George Marshall, will make the case that public engagement is essential for achieving our climate targets and will discuss a major new international initiative to transform government commitments to public engagement.
