Communicate conference 2023 took place on the 14th, 15th & 16th November. Communicate: Together for Nature was our biggest conference yet with 40 sessions led by 100 speakers taking place online, hybrid and live in Bristol, Manchester and London. For the first time in Communicate history, we brought together over 1000 delegates to our in-person and digital events.
Together for Nature – we invited an inspiring range of voices from across the environmental communication and media sectors, alongside diverse industries. We dived into the biggest changes, opportunities and pressures on our audiences, our key communication channels and our own sector. We asked, how can we amplify our work and partnerships even further to support our audiences to work together for nature?
Together for Nature? – we invited speakers and delegates to debate, discuss and challenge us to look deeper at our impact, our projects and our partnerships. We asked, 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?
In 2023, the Natural History Consortium worked in partnership with the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to present a special strand of sessions running across all three days of the conference showcasing cutting-edge social science research.
