Communicating Environmental Water Literacy through Active Engagement

The 43rd annual IAH Irish Group groundwater conference: “Groundwater & Planning”, was held in the Tullamore Court Hotel on April 18th and 19th, 2023. The overarching theme of this year’s conference was Groundwater and Planning.

There was a range of discussions offering insights, reflections, guidance and experience on this important topic. Some speakers offered practical perspectives and experiences on issues related to groundwater and planning – covering case and site studies, as well as insights into complexities of groundwater behaviour in particular environments; others offered insights from a legal and regulatory perspective that will be invaluable to practitioners; and we looked at the topic from an all island perspective.

Water Institute Member Prof. Pat Brereton presented at the event around the important and ever-changing role of complex science communication in climate change and gave some really great insights into how this is impacting the climate change message – his presentation entitled Communicating Environmental Water Literacy through Active Engagement.
Prof Brereton presented the many aspects of water and communication through the research he has been doing over the last number of years and encapsulated in his recently published ‘Essential Concepts in Environmental Communication: An A-Z Reader’ (2022).
