Walking the Talk: Risk Communication to Inspire Action
Mon. 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., Interlocken A
How can we best encourage a culture of preparedness, communicate risk, and promote meaningful action from the public?
In a world where the risks of hazards and disasters are readily apparent, people and organizations still struggle to translate their understanding of possible impacts into action. This session will explore gaps in communication efforts and the realities of how diverse groups communicate. Panelists will also offer examples of successful initiatives and novel approaches in risk communication that are moving the public and organizations toward a culture of preparedness.
