A roundtable with Conservation Optimism at Communicate 2020 – Sofia Castelló y Tickell, Megan Cromp, Trisha Gupta, Julia Migné, Nina Seale and Cheli Sinclair

Wild nature and species have declined by 70% over the last 50 years, so what do we have to feel optimistic about? Join this roundtable to find out what optimism means to the Conservation Optimism team, how they are using their optimism as a powerful tool to reframe the conservation narrative and how we can all put it into action and empower others to act for nature.

Communicate is an annual environmental communication conference bringing together a diverse group of delegates each year to develop their skills, share best practice and debate latest issues in science communication, nature conservation and engaging people with the natural world.
