Media and society

This module provides an overview of various types of media, how they work and how you can use them to communicate your work and/or inform policy.

Identifying and crafting an engaging story

We teach how you can use engrossing narratives to communicate scientific findings and engage with a wide range of stakeholders. We discuss the ingredients of a good story, the criteria for newsworthiness, and how to write good news articles and press releases.

Commentaries and op-eds

Engaging with policy involves more than communicating scientific facts: it entails shaping opinion and helping set the policy agenda. We discuss framing and writing, the importance of timing and relevance, and how to make actionable recommendations.

“Elevate delivered an excellent workshop to a diverse audience of sustainability researchers wishing to improve their press release writing skills.”
