Welcome to the post-truth era. Consumers have been burned by the recession, fake news, and CSR scandals from major brands, and levels of public trust in government, media, business and NGOs are in sharp decline.

But all hope is not lost. For the sustainability community, this crisis of trust offers a golden opportunity to develop innovative communications strategies that tell an organisation’s sustainability story in a transparent, engaging and meaningful way.

The 2018 edie Sustainability Communications Conference will bring sustainability, marketing and communications experts together to discuss how you can tell that sustainability story; from capitalising on the opportunities offered by global frameworks such as the SDGs, through to creating impactful campaigns and forming new ‘communication coalitions’.
Packed with an array of exciting case studies, interactive sessions and collaborative workshops, this event will equip you with the insight and inspiration you need to develop a winning sustainability communications strategy that will help to rebuild trust and drive real business change.
