Environmental Communication



From Ecological Activists to Ecomodernists?how humans think, talk about, and represent nature has had an impact on policymaking, natural resource management, and the place that nature has in our day-to-day lives. This course explores how people communicate about the environment and how such rhetoric is used by advertisers, policy-makers, and opinion leaders. We will also cover how citizens can join (or resist) the effort to manage public opinion about the environment. Topics include environmental rhetoric, media and journalism, public participation in environmental decision making, social marketing and advocacy, and nature in popular culture and green marketing.
