Creating convincing charts, maps and diagrams on climate change – workshop in Brussels, November 10, 2009

Full day workshop on communicating climate change issues in maps, graphics and charts, in Brussels on November 10, 2009.

In addition to the previously announced workshop in Copenhagen, we are happy to announce another date.

To build capacity in explaining and illustrating climate change, Envalue and Nordpil have joined forces to hold a full-day workshop on effective communication of climate change.

In the workshop, participants will learn how to communicate climate change through visual material that captures the audience's attention, expanding the reach and impact of information. The workshop is designed for anyone who works with climate change issues – from researchers and government staff to journalists and communicators.

The workshop will be held place in Brussels on November 10, 2009. For full details and registration, go to

Rather than focusing on technical proficiency in software handling, the workshop focuses on background and theory as well as what to achieve (and why), but not necessarily how to achieve it. The day ends with a show-and-tell session in which we view, discuss and analyze examples of communication that works and that doesn't work, with samples provided by the participants and organizers.

Workshop leaders Marianne Fernagut of Envalue and Hugo Ahlenius of Nordpil have extensive experience in working for the United Nations, inter­national institutions, think tanks, and national governments – with in-depth knowledge of global environmental issues and graphics products.

The previously announced workshop in Copenhagen is scheduled to take place just before the COP15 climate change meeting, on December 4 2009. For more information, please refer to
