Communicating about development issues is tricky. You can easily get stuck in old-fashioned images and reinforce stereotypes against your will. It can lead to an unpleasant atmosphere of mistrust affecting your credibility and legitimacy.
You have to talk about a complex issue while making it simple for the public. You have to appeal to emotions and to get funds while respecting people’s dignity. This conflictual situation makes the life of communicators and campaigners hard. It’s time to think on the impact of our communication and start reflecting on our practices to improve them! But how?
In order to guide organisations to see a light in the long and dark communication tunnel, we organise a webinar on how to use communication for real transformation. This will be done through an hour online discussion with 4 speakers who have experienced different ways of communicating development:
- Elena Blackmore from PIRC will explain us why are values and framing important elements to consider in communication (Values & Frames).
- Sofie Schousboe Laursen from CISU will share the learnings of their European project ‘Reframing the message‘.
- Fiona Coyle from Dóchas will show us how can the Code of Conduct be a tool to communicate differently.
- Eloísa Nos Aldás from Universitat Jaume I / DevReporter Network will focus on communication for social change from a journalists and media perspective .
