Communicate for lasting change
Water in Communications is a programme of events designed to give communicators the knowledge and skills they need to reach a wider audience and empower people to make better decisions about water.
Communicating about water and climate issues is complex and nuanced. There is also a lack of understanding about water – its value, functions, and relationship to the climate emergency.
To build public awareness, ramp up pressure on decision-makers and foster behaviour change that supports climate goals, we need effective communication. But many don’t have the necessary tools. And it’s not as simple as it sounds.
"Journalists, bloggers, editors and activists, as well as marketers and communications specialists working for government, private sector businesses and non-profits can benefit from the programme."
Kim Nøhr Skibsted, Executive Director

From 2020-2021, the programme ran as a pilot project. Based on the excellent results, the Foundation has decided to continue supporting the programme. As of 2024, the workshops also offer Spanish interpretation.
