Smart Climate Communications in Complicated Times

Climate & Energy Series
Wednesday, January 19, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:15pm

Our first lunch-hour Climate & Energy talk of 2022, "Smart Climate Communications in Complicated Times," featured speaker Jane Elder. Elder, the former executive director of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters and long-time advocate for strategic approaches to environmental communications, discussed insights from Yale's “Six Americas of Climate Change” analysis. She reviewed the basics of values-based communication strategies and social marketing in the context of climate change.

Our 2022 Climate & Energy Series continues to explore how Wisconsin leaders are moving beyond incrementalism to transformational action at the intersections of climate, land management, and environmental justice. These conversations are designed to foster discussion and peer learning among experts, practitioners, and climate-concerned community members regarding local solutions to global environmental challenges. Join us for these virtual discussions to build a collective sense of purpose, knowledge, and action as we face the many challenges of our time.

Jane Elder recently retired from her position as Executive Director of the Wisconsin Academy. She brought to the Wisconsin Academy a strong background in public policy leadership, nonprofit management, and involvement in Wisconsin arts.
