The workshop ‘Future challenges: Risk Communication’ is part of a series of Workshops that cover future challenges and associated uncertainty. They are interactive events using a flipped classroom concept: participants study theory (knowledge and comprehension) in advance so class time can focus on higher level skills (application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation) in discussions and exercises.

The workshop is organised by the European Forest Institute (EFI) in collaboration with the Pau Costa Foundation, the Open University of Catalonia, and the European University Cyprus. The session is a continuation of the online course ‘Basics of Risk Communication’ that was held in November 2021.

The programme of the workshop will cover communication of risk-related research to a range of audiences, including media, as part of a solid communication strategy. We will reflect together on how to handle conflicts and controversies in communication. Each participant will receive support and personalised feedback on communication of their own research.

Who can join?
The workshop is open to both external students that are not involved in the Pyrolife project as well as early stage researchers (ESRs) who take part in the project.

The fees (130 Euros for ESR Students; 180 Euros for external participants) cover the costs of the venue and resource persons. The fees do not cover accomodation and meals during the workshop.

More info and recommendation for hotels will follow after the registration. For more details on the workshop, please contact maria.schlossmacher(at)
