NOAA Climate Stewards Education Project Webinar
Monday, May 2, 2016 - 19:30

​Monday, May 2nd at 7:30 pm Eastern Time

Have you ever wondered what would be the best way to talk about climate change? Have you felt unsure if your message is clear and connects to your students or audiences? If so, then this webinar is for you! Effectively communicating complex issues involves sound science and an element of artistry. The FrameWorks Institute interviewed over 18,000 Americans and conducted multiple experiments on the topic of communicating climate chanage to identify the “frames” or messaging strategies, which are most likely to help the public understand that:

  • fossil fuels are the primary cause of climate change
  • our ocean is part of the climate change story
  • we need alternative energy solutions at the community-based level
  • these are all issues that we can and should tackle

 

Find out how you can use these simple, clear, and effective messages to communicate climate change in your classroom and beyond!
