Communicate 2017: Navigating Change
1 & 2 November 2017
Clifton Pavilion at Bristol Zoo Gardens
In a time of unprecedented social, economic and political change we urgently need proactive tools for successfully communicating environmental issues. Communicate went straight to the interface and asked some difficult questions about current approaches as we explored a shifting landscape of echo-chambers, divisive opinions and fake news.
150 delegates came together to discuss, debate, and built vital communications toolkits for the coming year over two days of inspiring content, cutting edge research, practical workshops and engaging discussion.

Changing Minds: Tools from Behavioural Science
In the lead up to Communicate 2017, this exciting, new, one-day event took a focused look at behavioural science:
Understanding how people think, feel and respond to information is vital to successfully communicating environmental issues and influencing positive change. Expert researchers and communications practitioners brought together a diverse range of perspectives, using behavioural sciences to explore and influence a shifting landscape of echo-chambers, divisive opinions and fake news.
85 delegates came together for the day to discuss, debate and build a vital communications toolkit for the coming year using new insights into behavioural psychology and sociology.
