Say This Not That series: Countering the oil & gas jobs growth frame

June 25 , 2:00 pm 3:00 pm EDT

Please join the Halt the Harm Network for the next event in their “Say This Not That” series: “Countering the oil & gas jobs growth frame.” Halt the Harm’s Communications Fellow Helene Langlamet will draw together pieces from the field of climate communication and from her own research to construct a framework for how to counteract the industry’s exaggerated claims about the economic benefits of oil and gas development. She will be using the Ohio River Valley Institute’s Frackalachia Update Report to show how reliable data about the industry can be used as a starting point to craft an effective counternarrative to the industry’s jobs growth frame with just a little bit of general knowledge about Rhetoric and a good understanding of the audiences you are appealing to

​Come join us for this webinar if you are interested in learning a few general guidelines for constructing an effective counter-industry argument. The aim of this event will be to introduce you to a systematic communication strategy that you can adapt to almost any context. As always, there will be plenty of room to connect and discuss how to apply the knowledge shared to your particular context, as well as to generate ideas about what to cover next.
