Live Q&A: What are the best ways to communicate climate solutions?

The live Q&A will take place in this link.

Invest in renewable energy, protect indigenous land rights, plant drought-tolerant crops, build strong and sturdy housing – the list of ways to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change goes on, but what are the best ways to communicate them?

For climate campaigns, the difficulty often lies in representing the full global scale of the issue without appearing too emotive or dramatic. Conversely, those only featuring a small part of the picture can be accused of being too simplistic.

The 2009 film, Lessons of the Loess Plateau, looked at the large-scale environmental restoration project undertaken in northern China. The documentary shows how the stark and dusty wasteland was transformed into a luscious agricultural landscape. Pragmatic and results-focused communications are compelling – the film shows the huge potential of environmental restoration – but with such a complex issue, perhaps a variety of approaches should be used.

So what are the most effective ways to present climate solutions? Is it time to change the language used in climate campaigns? What is the role of social media and what innovative tactics are out there?

Join an expert panel on Thursday 30th April, 8-10pm Malaysia time, to discuss these questions and more.

The live chat is not video or audio-enabled but will take place in the comments section (below). Get in touch via globaldevpros@theguardian.com or @GuardianGDP on Twitter to recommend someone for our expert panel. Follow the discussion using the hashtag #globaldevlive.
