Thur, Jan 18, 2024, 4:30PM - Voices for Change: Empowering Climate Change Communicators
How can communicators across America, from TV weather casters, to health professionals, and trusted voices in between be activated to cultivate public and political will for climate solutions?
We invite you to an event with Professor Edward Maibach, Director of the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University—a university-based “think-and-do tank.” Professor Maibach will illuminate some key insights into public understanding of climate communication that have emerged from the Yale/George Mason “Climate Change in the American Mind” surveys conducted twice yearly since 2008.
Join us for this unique opportunity to engage with a leading expert on climate communication.
