Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce [BEST] and Bermuda College will be hosting an Eco Lunch & Learn presentation on Thursday [Jan 26] from 1.00pm to 2.00pm.
A spokesperson said, “The community are invited to attend our first Eco Lunch & Learn presentation of 2023. The presentation is free and no registration is required. On Thursday, January 26th, Dr. Rosemarie McMahon will show you how to communicate and improve understanding of complex issues such as climate change and to your audiences.”
Dr. McMahon explains, “The advantages of communication, is widely acknowledged and a large body of research has shown that the appropriate application of communication can affect how content is perceived and used.
“The outstanding question for communication experts is how to improve the public’s understanding of complex information, such as climate change, and this has motivated a number of studies that are discussed in this presentation.
“Still, we understand very little about how climate science is comprehended and used in the decision process. In fact, some of the communication approaches used by scientists can unintentionally mislead and misinform. There are a number of important lessons we can extract from these studies and apply in the context of climate education and outreach.”
