Communicate 2023: Together for Nature

Communicate: Together for Nature took place on the 14th, 15th & 16th November. This year’s conference for environmental communicators was our biggest yet with 40 sessions taking place online, hybrid and live in Bristol, Manchester and London.

We worked with our partners to pull together a programme packed full of opportunities, inspiration, and practical help, alongside facilitated and open networking sessions. We brought together 100 different speakers and chairs across the online, Bristol, London and Manchester programmes of talks, panel discussions, workshops, and masterclasses.

In 2023, the Communicate conference programme was split up into six strands:

The Natural History Consortium in partnership with the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) presented a special strand of sessions running across all three days of the conference showcasing cutting-edge social science research.

The digital recordings from Communicate 2023 will be available to watch via our website and YouTube channel in the next few weeks, keep an eye on our social media and newsletter to be the first to discover the talks.
