EuroPCom, the European Public Communication Conference, is the annual conference and networking event for communication experts from local, regional, national and European authorities, as well as private communication agencies, NGOs and academia.
The 13th edition of EuroPCom took place in the morning on Friday 28 October 2022, as a fully digital, half-day event.
Under the slogan "Communicating climate action", this year's EuroPCom was the occasion to convey EU's political messaging ahead of the COP27, which took place in Sharm el-Sheikh 6-18 November 2022; and to discuss communication techniques and methods on how to engage citizens in climate action.
On the programme were two fully digital 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.
