Greenpeace Media Officer Joe Smyth kicks off the Roadshow’s Summer School webinar series with an interactive training on how environmentally-conscious citizens can take Action Through Media.
He walks participants through the process of writing an effective Op Ed and Letter to the Editor, how to get the word out about issues that are of local and global concern, and give advice on how to ensure your letters and petitions are published in print and online mediums.
This webinar was broadcast live from Greenpeace headquarters in Washington, DC.
