Back to Communicate

Online

3:30pm – 5:00pm – Tuesday 17th & Tuesday 24th November

Communicate+ is a cutting edge event for young people aged 11-14 to discuss, explore and learn about key issues in science communication and nature conservation. The programme is shaped by young people themselves, alongside experts and partners in the conservation sector. Online attendees will build their skills as environmental communicators and create discussion opportunities between researchers and young people on current environmental science questions and policies.

Running over two evenings, we will be discussing such issues such as the environmental impact of Coronavirus, what we need to do to rebuild a better, cleaner and greener world in the wake of the pandemic and how we can get the message out to people from all backgrounds, races and ethnicities.

All discussion will be facilitated by experts and young people working in the conservation sector and the event is co-organised by Avon Wildlife Trust.

Attendees can expect to:

  • Learn about current key environmental issues
  • Receive training to learn how to influence changes in policy and people’s behaviour
  • Influence discussion at the Communicate conference which will be attended by Government representatives, scientists, communicators and conservation charities

This event is open to groups of secondary school age children including school classes, after school clubs and youth clubs. If you, or someone you know, are interested in attending this event please get in touch by emailing Ourbrightfuture@avonwildlifetrust.org.uk
