Here's a description of the program: How can technology and effective mass communication help achieve a sustainable future? Social media is going to play a critical role in the months and years ahead. This course takes social media to new levels by providing useful and practical lessons in how best to navigate this technology in strategic ways. Learn about the development of social media, where it is headed in the future, new ideas and trends and how to bring attention and traffic to enhance your work (and that of others) in protecting our planet. You will become conversant in using social media platforms professionally. Case studies illustrate how to put environmental issues in the mainstream and how to attract large and diverse audiences when social media is used effectively.
