You come from different countries, speak different languages, and have different education and specializations. We assume you also have different experiences of environmental problems; you might have different views and ideas about how environmental and other societal problems should be managed, and what role communication play in this management processes. During this course we will use these differences in experience and views as a resource in order to understand environmental communication, together with theory presented in literature and lectures. We will communicate a lot and use theory to understand and change the communication situations we are experiencing.
