This training will help you communicate more effectively with Mainers on the topic of climate change. Based on extensive Maine social research conducted by a team of strategic communication professionals, the training workshop includes information on modern brain science as well as findings on how to change opinion and move audiences to action. The trainer leads attendees through a multimedia presentation with plenty of time for discussion and practice. No matter your audience, you will gain helpful insights on how to better reach and connect with them. All are welcome, no prior experience with communications necessary. All trainees who complete the training workshop receive the print edition of Communication with Mainers of Climate Change Toolkit.
Follow up support and opportunities for ongoing evaluation of implementation efforts will be available for six months after the workshop through a series of interactive webinars, office hours and online evaluations hosted by the Climate Table and Tyler Kidder. Webinars will offer an opportunity to workshop progress to date and share ideas and examples of climate communications. Office hours will allow for one-on-one support from the workshop facilitator.
