EPA’s State and Local Climate and Energy Program will host a three-part webcast series on communications on December 4th, 11th, and 18th, 2013. This series will provide information on communication strategies and methods that state and local governments can use to ensure the ongoing success of climate and clean energy programs.
The structure of the three webcasts will parallel the general phases of program development and implementation: attracting stakeholder support and participation, sustaining change, and gaining momentum from program successes.
Participants will learn how to design communications strategies to engage and empower stakeholders, use communications methods to instigate and sustain behavior change and foster individual and community solutions, and effectively communicate their programs’ successes and resulting benefits to diverse audiences.
