Biodiversity coffee seminar - Josh Ettinger - Hollywood Storytelling Workshop
This interactive communications workshop will explore how Hollywood screenwriting principles can help scientists more effectively engage diverse audiences about environmental issues. It will be run by Josh Ettinger, a DPhil student based at ECI/SoGE. He previously worked in the entertainment industry at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and in science communication roles at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Global Canopy and Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).
After initially developing this workshop for the Oxford Climate Society in 2018, he now runs it for NGOs, communications teams and students. He recently published an article in Nature on the topic.
