Learn How to Change the World: How Can We Reach People?

Date: 
Thu, 06/04/2017

2pm-5pm

FREE, organised by Leicester DeMontfort University

Leicester De Montfort University’s masters course Leading Change for Sustainability is running a programme of free public events (online and in Leicester) to bring together students and practitioners across the East Midlands to share knowledge on how to change behaviours and society to promote environmental sustainability. Everyone is welcome – from campaigners, community project volunteers and social entrepreneurs, to researchers, local government workers and individuals seeking to green their communities or organisations.

This event, the final one in the series, will look at how we communicate and engage the public with sustainabiliy. It will challenge our assumptions about what works, drawing on theory and practice.

Details on how to sign up will be available soon via http://bit.ly/2kRft8m – in the meantime, send an email to Andrew Reeves on areeves@dmu.ac.uk to receive full details shortly, including how to register.
