Excerpt from course description

Green marketing and communication


The green shift is in a new phase. The political goals (EU sustainability goals) have been set and new companies are fighting for attention on sustainable alternatives with traditional actors. Communication and marketing play a key role in the green shift. But for what reason are consumers "turning off" when you hear about climate and the environment and why is climate communication so demanding? In this course, we address psychological barriers that help explain why it is so difficult to communicate needed changes in attitudes and actions. We also look at strategies for talking about climate in ways that can motivate us to change.
