Stephen Flood

4pm - 6pm
Hunter College, North Building
Room 1004 (Conference Room)

Topic: This seminar will leverage the work carried out in the Climate Changes Impacts and Implications for New Zealand (CCII) project to demonstrate some of the key issues and approaches associated with communicating across a diverse range of disciplines and stakeholders. The broad aim of the presentation is to provide the epistemic community within the climate change sphere with grounded examples of effective communication approaches while also pointing out potential pitfalls and how best to avoid them.
