I am giving a presentation on climate change communication for the Archdiocese of Chicago’s Office of Human Dignity and Solidarity on Wednesday. The event description, my slides and links to additional resources are below.

“Join the Office of Human Dignity and Solidarity on Wednesday, June 6 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. as we answer Pope Francis’ call to ‘each person on this living planet’ to care for our common home. Because everyone’s home is different, creating effective campaigns around this initiative can be challenging.

During this seminary, Assistant Professor of Journalism Jill Hopke of DePaul University will share insights from the latest social science research on how to design communication strategies that connect climate change to daily life and tips for choosing engaging climate visuals. Participants will get ideas for how to tell new narratives about the human toll of our changing climate, as well as for building community resiliency and climate hope.”

Wednesday, June 6, 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Cardinal Meyer Center
3525 South Lake Park Avenue
Chicago, IL 60653
