Speech Bubble with 3 dotsDecision-makers, funders, the public; we often overlook these values, motivators and language that really influence people’s decision-making and behaviour change. This session will introduce some tools that can positively impact communication and engagement and give an overview of cultural dynamics and values, which can be used to maker our research more applicable to others.

Ian Rowlands is a former Guardian journalist and sees communication as the key to tackling the great environmental challenges of our time. Having worked in the environmental NGO sector for many years, Ian has gained valuable experience in leading large-scale projects with the creative community, reaching a diverse audience about environmental issues.
