Environmental Communications

Environmental Communications is the science that researches, designs, implements and evaluates communication strategies to connect existing personal values to environmental causes. This work motivates targeted audiences to value the role the environment plays in sustaining quality of life.

It takes an informed public to achieve environmental goals, and that public needs to be engaged—by way of words and images. Using a convergent journalism style, we inspire people to learn more, take action and build lasting connections with the world’s precious landscapes, wildlife and water systems.
