The UK’s conference for environmental communicators

Communicate is an annual environmental communication conference bringing together a diverse group of delegates each year to develop their skills, share best practice and debate latest issues in science communication, nature conservation and engaging people with the natural world.

Communicate started in 2004. Visit our Communicate archive to see past speakers.


Communicate is the UK’s leading conference for environmental communicators. Each year we bring together a diverse group of delegates to develop their skills, share best practice and debate the latest issues in environmental communication. This year’s theme is ‘Amplifying Awareness, Focusing Action’, and offers participants the opportunity to delve into the heart of environmental communication in a changing world and an increasingly challenging comms landscape.

This year, our conference looks a little different. Communicate 2022 will be held online on November 15-16 2022, with an additional option to attend a day of in-person workshops and masterclasses in London (Day 1, November 15) and Bristol (Day 2, November 16). The events for live audiences will take place alongside the online conference and will follow the theme of the day.

Check back over the coming months as we announce speakers, sessions and other ways to get involved in the programme!
