The Environmental Communication School, organised by Ihobe-the Environmental Management Agency of the Basque Government and APIA-Association of Environmental Journalists, was set up in response to two major concerns – communication and the environment – affecting us both globally and locally.

The school seeks to generate a space for reflection and offer some pointers on communicating major environmental challenges, such as the climate crisis, biodiversity loss, environmental conservation, implementation of the circular economy and sustainable development.

The main theme of the 3rd School is the climate and energy transition, at a key moment of economic and social transformation encompassing the environment.

After 2020 chequered by the coronavirus pandemic, Europe’s recovery involves converting the environmental challenges into innovation opportunities. The Green Deal unveiled by the European Commission is a new growth strategy aimed at transforming the EU into a prosperous and equitable society, with a modern economy that is resource efficient and competitive. The target is to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and for economic growth to be decoupled from the use of resources.

Good information is needed to undertake the transition and this third course run by the Environmental Communication School will consider issues such as:

  • The climate and energy binomial
  • The relationship between climate change, biodiversity and health
  • The COP26 in Glasgow
  • Environmental communication from SMEs.
  • The environment in local information
  • New communication formats


Propose keys to address the challenge of the dual climate and energy transition from a communicative and informative perspective.

Promote, from the field of communication, the involvement of companies, organizations and citizens in changing habits and behaviors to live (and produce) in a more sustainable way.

Identify good practices and inspiring proposals.

Put the main keys into practice with practical workshops.
