Toby Smith, Climate Visuals Programme Lead, will present an introduction to the 7 Climate Visuals Principles, an accessible evidence based guide to what makes not just illustrative but truly impactful imagery. This will be demonstrated with curated examples from the past Environment and Nature winners within the World Press Photo Collection. Finally, there will be a short reflection on the phenomenon of environmental photography during COVID and the challenges ahead as we emerge.
As part of the Behaviour, Energy & Climate Change (BECC) conference webinar series, our Founding Director George Marshall will make the case that public engagement is essential for achieving our climate targets and discuss a major new international initiative to transform governments' commitment to public engagement. How do we assert people’s legal (and moral) right to know, and how can we transform our approach to engagement, overcoming polarisation, building a broad-based public mandate to support action?
