Deeds and Words Matter: How Can We Close The Say-Do Gap?

8:30–9:30 a.m. G.M.T.
The Warehouse
Tortoise Media

The science is clear. There is, however, a gap between what we know needs to happen and the actions we are taking. To close the gap we need to change the way we communicate. How do we talk about a climate emergency without catastrophizing? How do we make the science of climate change easier to understand and the language jargon-free? How can we communicate the benefits of net-zero in ways that feel relevant to people’s lives? How do we use communications to empower consumers to change their behaviours? Who are the most trusted climate communicators – and what can we learn from them?
