TOP REVIEWS FROM COMMUNICATING CLIMATE CHANGE AND HEALTH
Nice way to wrap up the course series. I enjoyed the discussion of ways to effectively communicate issues to different audiences, particularly ones that don't share your own beliefs.
The course I was most interested in in this specialization but didn't meet my expectations due to US-centric examples and repetitive assignments. I did learn quite a lot though
The course gives very clear and applicable advice and evidence on how to effectively communicate climate change to multiple audiences. Very engaging, I highly recommend it!
Thank you so much for making this course available for us. I had gained a bigger and better perspective on climate change and health after completing the course.
