International Conference on Public Policy

Commitment to a sustainable future - A call for concrete action

Citizen engagement, social mobilization, responsibility of decision-makers, these were the major axes defended by the 18 participants of the panel 'Engaging Communication for a Sustainable Future - From Commitment to Concrete Action', during the 4th edition of the International Conference on Public Policy. With climate emergency on everyone's lips and tensions growing across the globe, governments and organizations at all levels of decision-making must act, did they argue. Gathered around these major issues, researchers and experts from 8 countries stressed the importance of dialogue, plurality of voices, ethics and innovation. And communication is central to put in place effective public policies for a sustainable future.
