Webinar Thursday covers communicating about climate change

A webinar on ?Effectively Communicating Climate Change to the American Public? will be offered from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, June 2, at the Environmental Education Center, Regents Row A116.

There is no one public response to climate change. One of the first rules of effective communication is ?know thy audience? ? including who they are, what they currently understand or misunderstand about climate change, their underlying values, attitudes and emotions, and whom they trust. This presentation will explore national public opinion about different dimensions of climate change, and will identify ?Six Americas,? an audience segmentation framework that has been widely used to develop effective education and communication tools focusing on climate change.

For more information, contact joni newcomer at 575-646-7563 or newcomer@nmsu.edu.
