The 2006 SECCP Annual Forum, 'Talk the Walk: Communicating the Climate Challenge, Inspiring Change,' will focus on practical approaches to help decision makers and practitioners in the public, private, and voluntary sectors make their climate messages meaningful and create positive change. The event will provide innovative examples of effective campaigns; good practice guidance on communicating change; and the tips, tools and contacts that organisations need to build strategies for engaging their own audiences effectively.
'For example, many local councils in the south east are already successfully engaging their communities. We want them to share their success stories. We want to find out what works - not only to make people aware of climate change, but to help them get involved and take action.'
The conference will take place on 30 November 2006 at the Paramount Oxford Hotel, Oxford. Speakers include Sir Crispin Tickell GCMG KCVO - SECCP president, former British ambassador to the United Nations and an internationally respected authority on climate change.
