For the past year an international task force has been developing plans for a professional organization dedicated to the field of environmental communication (EC). Up to this point, we have been mostly working internally. However, today we are releasing a strategic planning document for comment and discussion within and beyond the EC community of scholars, practitioners, students and activists.
Please download the International Environmental Communication Association strategic planning document (PDF) and have a look. We invite you to leave comments here on the blog, or send them to the Environmental Communication Network mailing list.
Please note that “International Environmental Communication Association” is a working name for the organization. In addition to your comments on the details of the proposed organization, we would also like to hear your suggestions for a name.
If you support the effort to build and promote the field and to improve and expand the practice of environmental communication, then I and my colleagues on the task force urge you to contribute to the discussion. And please pass this message on to people and networks you think might be interested.
