From the invite:
How do we talk about the most important message to mankind? The answer is we don’t. Communicating the impacts of climate change has turned out to be one of the biggest challenges communications professionals have faced in recent years.We have identified you as a person who has the skills to help co-create the framework for a much- needed change. Through your work, you have demonstrated the skill to identify a problem, document a solution and communicate the way forward in your area of expertise.The mission of We Need To Talk is to bring together selected professionals from the art world, marketing and branding, science, communications, journalism, and innovation and create a new language for talking about climate change.[···]Scandinavia’s leading independent think tank Monday Morning and the Villum Foundation stand behind this symposium with the support by IPCC chairman Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri[···]In October 2014, Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri, Chairman of UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC, presents the findings of the panel’s latest report in Copenhagen. This Synthesis Report is a much-anticipated milestone that will document the state of climate changes and projections for our future. The report will contain messages of high importance for the human race – and we need you to make sure that these messages create action.
With the symposium, we will lay the groundwork for a communications strategy for the upcoming IPCC climate change report – making October 2014 the starting point for a new approach to climate change communications.
