Climate change doesn't communicate itself. This week, Terra Informers Sonak Patel and Elizabeth Dowdell trace the evolution of climate change language and discuss how to meaningfully communicate the climate crisis.
Finding the language to build sustained public engagement on the climate crisis is one of the greatest challenges faced by science communicators today. In this episode, Terra Informers Sonak Patel and Elizabeth Dowdell consider the role that language plays in communicating the climate crisis and how it getting it wrong may contribute to continued climate inaction. To get further insight into the big picture of climate change communication, they spoke to Sean Holman, Professor of Journalism at Mount Royal University.
