This cycle of conferences is part of the project “Planet UAB: The journey to the other – equals in differences” organised by the Gabinete de Comunicación y Educación during the academic year 2020-2021, with the support of the Fons de Solidaritat of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, which organised a series of activities and awareness-raising actions based on the concept of the UAB campus as a “planet” and which dealt with major issues such as the culture of peace, sustainability, the environment and interculturality, among others.
Students from the Master’s in Travel Journalism, the Master’s in Environmental Communication and the Master’s in Communication and Education participated in this twelfth session with Tomás Peire, entitled ‘Communication, education and the environment‘. The journalist debated with the students about the effects of the influence of the media on the current environmental culture, shared sources of information to learn and obtain information about the environment and topics on which journalists must communicate and educate, such as sustainability, global warming, the 2030 Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals, or environmental pollution, among many others.
