Workshop: Who’s Listening?
UNFCCC. INDC. ASEAN. CBDR. REDD+. Welcome to a world filled with acronyms that even you might not be across, let alone the people that you’re trying to talk to. Come along for an exploration of how and why communications is important for successful advocacy within the UNFCCC process. What needs to be communicated, why and how? Participants will leave with a better understanding of how to communicate their activities in the lead up to and during Paris, and a better understanding of what it means to be a media spokesperson.
