Join us in learning about strategic framing- a research-based approach to communication that engages audiences in thinking productively about how they can participate in creating or supporting solutions to climate change.
This workshop will:
Introduce participants to the National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation (NNOCCI)- a community of colleagues who share an interest in stimulating dialog about how we can all participate in addressing issues of ocean and climate change,
Introduce participants to the elements of strategic framing such as tone, values, explanatory metaphors, and solutions. Provide an opportunity for participants to practice applying what they learn,
Increase participants’ confidence in their ability to overcome barriers to interpreting climate change issues.
Target Audiences: informal science educators, communications staff, scientists, and other interested parties.
