The 13th edition of EuroPCom takes place in the morning on Friday 28 October 2022, as a online – hybrid for CoR members, half-day event. The slightly smaller EuroPCom edition this year, will allow for the event to move from the autumn to the spring / early summer as of 2023.
Under the slogan "Communicating Climate Action", this year's EuroPCom will be the occasion to convey EU's political messaging ahead of the COP27, which takes place in Sharm el-Sheikh 6-18 November 2022; and to discuss communication techniques and methods on how to engage citizens in taking climate action.
On the programme are two sessions; first a panel debate featuring experts in climate summits giving us a global perspective at what is at stake at COP27 and providing information to climate communicators about the EU's political messaging; and secondly a session presenting practical examples on successful communication approaches and techniques to boost citizens, business or public authorities' engagement in delivering climate action.
EuroPCom is organised by the European Committee of the Regions in close cooperation with the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, the European Investment Bank, the Economic and Social Committee and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. It is the largest annual European conference for experts in public communication. Last year's event attracted over 700 communication professionals online from across the EU and beyond.
Registration is opening mid-September – stay tuned for more information on the www.europcom.eu website!
