ENVS 354 - Practicum in Environmental Communication

FC SSCI
4 credits
Effective communication is essential for promoting sustainability and resilience. It is also critical to professional development. Through projects that engage the full-diversity of communities, participants will develop skills associated with: pro-environmental and pro-community messaging, compelling visual and text delivery, proposal writing, public education, research and public presentation. The tools of social psychology, communication theory, visual arts and environmental education will be harnessed to motivate and empower community transformation. Projects will focus on further developing and assessing the efficacy of various components of ‘Environmental Dashboard’ (ED) as mechanisms for promoting pro-community attitudes and behaviors. ED components are currently being implemented in Oberlin, Toledo and Cleveland through partners that include the Toledo Public School System, the Great Lakes Science Center, Cleveland Metroparks, and many governmental and community organizations in these cities.
