THIS EVENT HAS NOW PASSED – thank you to all the schools who took part!

Against the backdrop of political upheaval and an increasingly active movement of disenfranchised youth, communicate messages to engage, take action and build clarity in society has never been more important.

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. Attendees will build their skills as environmental communicators and create discussion opportunities between researchers and young people on current environmental science questions and policies. Dinner will be provided.

Attendees can expect to:

  • Learn about the key environmental issues, including plastics, greenspaces for wildlife and climate change
  • Receive training to learn how to influence changes in policy and people’s behaviour
  • Design a campaign to create positive change
  • Influence discussionat the Communicate conference which will be attended by Government representatives, scientists, communicators and conservation charities
