EXCITING TRAINING OPPORTUNITY

How can we get more people to RECYCLE, CARPOOL, TURN THE LIGHTS OFF, USE LESS WATER, USE REUSABLE BAGS, or PREVENT THE SPREAD OF INVASIVE SPECIES? Mpact Communication, LLC has designed a course specifically focused on helping those in the environmental communication world communicate more effectively! Social Marketing for Sustainability: Influencing Greener Behaviors through Research-Based Messaging was designed to take the guess-work out of designing messages and bring communication research to practitioners. We will focus on issues central to sustainability and theories known to be effective in this arena. This course will provide a great introduction to communication theory for conservation practitioners who wish to guide people toward behaviors that are more compatible with our natural resource base and our ecosystems.
