As public and policy communicators, most of us struggle on daily basis with the difficulties of promoting an informed public debate on sustainable development and other relevant public-interest issues. Disinformation, fake news or simple accumulation of messages makes it difficult to foster public conversations on issues that require our urgent attention. Using global health, climate and migration and examples, this session will address this challenge and the potential solutions to overcome it.
