Earth Day Network and Connect4Climate invite you to join us for our upcoming eDiscussion! Over a billion are poised to commemorate the 45th anniversary of Earth Day (April 22nd). This is a critical time for promoting action on climate change, with world leaders scheduled to meet in Paris to adopt a historic, binding treaty on climate change.

Description:

The climate challenge is one of the defining issues of this century. Awareness about climate change is rising, but still there has been too little action. Communicating an effective message is  vital to building a movement of motivated citizens and especially tapping into youth’s deep potential. We have to bridge the gap between knowledge and action.

In this eDiscussion, panelists will discuss innovative strategies to climate communication. Topics will include technology and new media’s influence in spreading awareness, the power of solution stories, and the impact of influential role models.
