A Media-Workshop
on the theme “Communicating on Climate Change”

The Media-Workshop brings together weather presenters from 50 countries and representatives of European and international organizations. The objective is to conduct an in-depth reflection on how to communicate more effectively on Climate Change, toward TV viewers but also policy-makers.

Discussing communication strategies at the international level, and promoting the sharing of knowledge and expertise

The Media-Workshop will propose thematic group discussions led by moderators, presentations and roundtables animated by climate and social sciences experts, an exhibition dedicated to the sponsors of the Media-Workshop, and a role-playing game in partnership with the Red Cross/Red Crescent.
