About this book

A broader and more comprehensive understanding of how we communicate with each other about the natural world and our relationship to it is essential to solving environmental problems. How do individuals develop beliefs and ideologies about the environment? How do we express those beliefs through communication? How are we influenced by the messages of pop culture and social institutions? And how does all this communication become part of the larger social fabric of what we know as "the environment"?

"Communicating Nature" explores and explains the multiple levels of everyday communication that come together to form our perceptions of the natural world. Author, Julia B. Corbett considers all levels of communication, from the individual level, to environmental messages transmitted by popular culture, to communication generated by social institutions, including political and regulatory agencies, business and corporations, media outlets, and educational and religious organizations.
