Communicate 2023: Together for Nature

This year’s conference is taking place 14th, 15th & 16th November. Communicate: Together for Nature, will offer an online and hybrid programme over 3 days alongside in-person workshop events in Bristol, Manchester and London.

Together for Nature – we’re inviting an inspiring range of voices from across the environmental communication and media sectors, alongside diverse industries. We’ll be diving into the biggest changes, opportunities and pressures on our audiences, our key communication channels and our own sector. How can we amplify our work and partnerships even further to support our audiences to work together for nature?

Together for Nature? – we’ll also be inviting speakers and delegates to debate, discuss and challenge us to look deeper at our impact, our projects and our partnerships. Are we constantly delivering instead of making a difference? How do we measure what matters? How do create authentic opportunities for unheard voices to join and lead the debate, and how can we work more effectively together for nature?
