Environmental Communication - MECO805

The field of environmental communication is growing rapidly as scientists, governments, the media, corporations, NGOs, and local communities recognise the crucial role of effective communication about critical environmental concerns that are affecting all species on earth. This unit engages in key themes such as climate change, environmental sustainability, bio-diversity, genetically modified foods, and how different interest groups have used multiple forms of communication to influence society globally. Lectures and readings explore the current issues, debates, and scholarship in environmental communication supported by a variety of case studies.
