Creation of an international research network on environmental communication

Good news for the field of environmental communication, a Study and Research Group on Communication, Environment, Science and Society, created on November 22, 2018 by the Société française des sciences de l'Information et de la Communication will be an official voice to express the deep embedding of environmental communication in society and its links with the scientific field; and to participate formally in the social debate on environmental issues (including sustainability, social responsibility…) and the relationship of humankind with the rest of nature.

An inaugural symposium

With more than forty francophone researchers, this international research network on Communication, Environment, Science and Society officially gets underway by launching its inaugural days on June 17 and 18, 2019, in Aix-en-Provence, France. On the theme 'Relationships, Tensions, Synergies', the symposium intends to initiate reflection on the best forms of contribution the information and communication sciences could bring to the ecological transition. Solange Tremblay will be one of the participants with a presentation entitled Déclaration de responsabilité chez la très grande responsabilité ̶ Le discours accordéon.
