Educating the public about climate change through moms and why communication is critical to tackling the climate crisis. This is only important if you know a mom or if you are one.
Podcast Episode #9 of Sustainability@Work. A podcast hosted by Samara Croci.
Today’s guest at Sustainability@Work is Anne-Marie Kline, Chief Campaign Officer at Potential Energy for the Science Moms project.
Anne-Marie works for a no-profit startup agency called Potential Energy that wants to use the power of creativity and marketing to motivate urgent, collective action on climate change. Their latest and very successful campaign is called Science Moms and is all built around scientist moms explaining and sharing the science of climate change in a digestible, memorable and funny way to other moms.
So with Anne-Marie we will talk about the Science Moms campaigns and what are the secret weapons of its great success. But we will also talk about the experience of Potential Energy in communicating climate change and the power of new audiences, language, and positive conversations to engage more and more people.
