Theory and exercises for companies, organisations and professionals who want to keep up to date with expectations in a changing world.

Sustainability is changing societal, economic, financial and political balances and inevitably this has an impact on the way we communicate. This is the starting point for the collaboration between Amapola and UNI, the Italian national unification body, specifically its training division, UNItrain. With UNI, which monitors and guides businesses towards more attentive and responsible models, we have planned sustainability communication laboratory for companies, organisations and professionals who want to keep up with the latest developments in a crucial topic. The first course, eight hours subdivided into two afternoons, begins on Tuesday 16 February and ends on Thursday 16 February. The next course will be held on 20 and 27 June. You can register here.

Communicating sustainability: a question of substance

Effective, transparent and consistent communication on strategy and activities can bring an organisation’s sustainability alive, driving the spread of good practices, multiplying positive impacts, enhancing reputation and image, and increasing empathy and ties with territories, communities and stakeholders. This is not simply a strategy or tactic: in its original sense of “making common”, communication really can multiply impacts inside and outside an organisation. During the laboratory we shall be looking at how to plan communication to make it mindful, authentic and effective. We’ll be getting down to the nuts and bolts, helping participants discover strategies, channels, targets and communication tools.

The course, closely linked to the questions covered by the UNI EN ISO 26000:2020 standard, will be held remotely, and organised as a laboratory: analysis of case studies and best practices, and ideas workshops will alternate with formal training.
