Climate Change and the Role of PR; why communication is key

We have a real challenge on our hands when it comes to climate change, sustainability and saving our planet. Communication is a big part of this challenge in getting the message across and getting businesses and organisations thinking about how they can help the planet. David Attenborough in his first Instagram post said that:
“Saving our planet is now a communications challenge”
