Building Risk Communication Skills

Communicate Risks....Inspire Action!

This training is facilitated by NOAA collaborating with local and regional experts.

The job of discussing potential natural hazard risks and solutions—and motivating people to take action—is definitely not a “one size fits all” challenge.

In this course, participants will learn how to:

  • Respond to difficult questions with more confidence using social science and risk communication principles;
  • Develop an effective risk communication strategy that incorporates these principles;
  • Recognize differing values within their audience;
  • Identify why people perceive and respond to risk the way they do; and
  • Practice these new skills.
