Virtual panel: The role of Communications in the race against climate change

1:00 pm to 2:00 pm


Amplifiers or change agents?

How do we increase the scrutiny of companies and organisations on their pledges for change?

Can we help governments, companies and society move from pledge to progress?

Is it possible to pivot from amplification to transformation?

As communicators we need to embrace this important issue – our panellists, all experts in this field, will shed light on what is happening now and how we can play our part for the future of the planet

Our Panel:

Our team of experts will be discussing the importance of climate change in today’s challenging economic times and how we can address the problems of transparency and keep the subject at the top of the agenda
