#CommsCreateChange

Environmental crisis is already having an impact on many aspects of our lives, from the quality of the air we breathe, to food and water insecurity, and rising energy bills. The environmental crisis will impact every charity and every person they exist to serve and support, no matter the charity purpose.

In the words of Sir David Attenborough: “saving the planet is now a communications challenge.” Charity communicators have a vital role to play in communicating environmental crisis, regardless of charity purpose. The way that we as communicators talk about environmental crisis affects the way that people engage, think and respond to the problems and solutions. Our communications can determine if people switch off or feel compelled to act.

According to the NCVO The Road Ahead Report 2022, recent polling shows that the public is supportive of action from government, business, industry and energy suppliers to tackle climate change. But what about charities? As more scrutiny falls on the public and private sectors, the voluntary sector is thinking about how it can advocate for the environment and embed sustainable practices.

Join us as we talk about why environmental issues should become part of your charity’s values, mission and brand, and the frameworks you can use to structure and direct your thinking. We’ll hear from a variety of organisations who are communicating environmental crisis messages – whether they are local/grassroots, national or international organisations. Together, we’ll explore:

  • Why environmental issues should become part of your charity’s values, mission and brand
  • What framework do you need to help structure and direct thinking on environmental crisis?
  • Framing your messages
  • Why visuals matter when communicating environmental crisis
  • How charities are building environmental crisis awareness into their communications
  • How charities are demonstrating the intersectionality of environmental crisis
  • What can we learn from environmental campaigners?
  • Collaboration with other charities
