Launch of Développement durable - Une communication qui se démarque

 

 

Développement durable - Une communication qui se démarque, the second book published in Quebec and Canada about this important communication issue, was launched on March 21, 2018 ten years after the first book, Développement durable et Communications - Au-delà des mots pour un véritable engagement, published by Solange Tremblay in 2007.

This new title, coauthored by Solange Tremblay, Nicole D’Almeida and Thierry Libaert, argues for an active role by communication professionals on sustainable development issues in society. In a world afflicted by precarity, poverty, social upheavals and violence on a global scale, the authors point out the urgency to reinforce our concrete commitment, responsibility and action.

 

 

The event was held in presence of Danielle Maisonneuve, founder and first chairholder of the Chair in Public Relations and Marketing Communication, now retired, association leaders and many professionals, researchers, teachers, colleagues and friends working in the field of communication and sustainable development.

Written with the collaboration of communication experts and renowned academics from both sides of the Atlantic, this new title which was first put in circulation in Quebec (March) and then in Europe (June) received a great response. In the beginning of July, four months after its publication in Quebec, Développement durable – Une communication qui se démarque had to be quickly reprinted to meet the demand.

Several members of the SUSTAINABILITY | COMMUNICATION Group participated: Thérèse Drapeau, Guy Lachapelle, Jacques Baronet and Solange Tremblay, co-director of the book. Published in the Presses de l'Université du Québec. More

Sustainable Development A Renewed Commitment from the Communicators of Quebec

On March 21, 2018, during the launch of Développement durable - Une communication qui se démarque, Quebec communicators renewed their pledge to enhance sustainable development values in their activities within organizations and society. The signatories include the Alliance des cabinets de relations publiques du Québec, Association des communicateurs municipaux du Québec, IABC/Montréal, Public Relations without Borders and Société québécoise des professionnels en relations publiques.

Signed twelve years earlier in October 2006, the original commitment − Declaration of the Public Communicators and Public Relations Professionals of Quebec on Sustainable Development − was an international first.
