Environmental Communication Lab at Eckerd College
Welcome to the hub for environmental communication at Eckerd College!
THINKOUTSIDE is Eckerd's school motto, and our students are committed to it! Learning how best to communicate about, and take action on important environmental issues is one essential part of that commitment. Eckerd students have taken this to heart. Environmental Communication and Climate Change Communication classes have been offered since 2017, and this page is dedicated to sharing their communication projects and successes.
Have fun exploring our site! The class blogs feature student projects communicating about various environmental issues all over the country and even internationally! Enjoy!
