Learn to design communication & outreach plans that motivate action

Book your spot today for the next Making Moves online course!

October 10 - November 21, 2019
Every Thursday from 12:15 - 1:15pm ET

This online course provides conservationists with the critical skills and tools needed to create a communication strategy and plan that motivates people to take action.

This means you'll learn how to:

  • Prioritize behaviors to promote that will achieve your conservation goal.
  • Identify primary and secondary audiences for communication and outreach efforts.
  • Explore which tangible and psychological barriers exist for your audiences.
  • Select message frames and creative approaches that motivate audiences to take action.
  • Choose audience- and budget-appropriate channels of communication and outreach.
  • Bring everything together into a comprehensive strategy and implementation plan.

This course is for you, if...

  • You've ever felt frustrated that your current outreach efforts weren't producing the desired results: "they're still doing the things we're telling them not to do?!?!"
  • You've felt like your messages were only reaching the "already converted" and you need more people to get on board.
  • You've made great progress but need to keep the momentum going and aren't sure how to reach the next level.
  • You need to design a brand-new engagement plan and aren't sure where to start.
  • You want to build your own capacity as a behavior change communicator.

If any part of your work is asking people to get more engaged in conservation activities, then this course will equip you with the skills needed to mobilize large and small communities to take action.

Will it be use-able???

This course is designed to be highly practical. I provide you with templates, tools and worksheets you can use with your own projects right away.

Participants are asked to identify a single project and behavior change goal at the start that will serve as the consistent pilot-run throughout the lessons and worksheets. 

In addition to your own chosen project, two case study examples will be featured throughout - one that is focused on a small community-based change and another that explores larger, national & global change movements.

These processes and frameworks are ones you can use over & over again throughout your career.

Refund Policy

All refund requests made by October 16, 2019, 8:00am EST will receive a full refund. This means you can even attend the first lesson and decide to leave the workshop prior to Lesson 2 with a full refund.
