The project involves the development of new interdisciplinary knowledge and approaches to best practices in coastal Louisiana environmental communication. This was achieved through a case study on the communication of global climate change impacts in Louisiana, and the creation of a new Coastal Environmental Communication undergraduate course in the Manship School of Mass Communication at LSU.
Direct + Broader Impacts:
The course allows for communicators better inform policy-makers and engage community members in policies and local efforts to increase resilience and adapt to a changing coastal environment.
