Garfield Weston Foundation launches Weston Communicating Climate programme

Media Trust and the Garfield Weston Foundation have launched the Weston Communicating Climate programme. This six-month skills programme will offer free expert-led communications training for environment and climate charities working across the UK.

They are looking to recruit 30 organisations to take part in the core programme and extend the power, impact and reach of their communications. Participants will enjoy access to structured strategic communications training, peer networking support, and media interview training. What’s more they will also be offering four free sector-wide communications masterclasses so even more charities can benefit!

The programme will be delivered entirely online, meaning charities across all parts of the UK will be able to have the opportunity to apply and take part.

The core programme will offer six workshops that will help charities in:

  1. Communicating complex messages clearly
  2. Growing and building audiences online
  3. Digital fundraising
  4. Compelling storytelling – from content creation to case studies
  5. Working with and supporting climate influencers
  6. Engaging the media

Applications will close on Tuesday, February 16th. See here for more details, eligibility criteria, and how to apply.
