Environmental communication refers to how individuals and societies craft, distribute, receive, understand, and use messages about the environment and our interactions with the environment.
It plays an important role in creating meaning as it shapes how we see and value the world. For example, mass media shapes our understanding of environmental issues and the problems that underlie them, the people and organizations involved, the possible approaches that can be taken, potential futures, and most importantly, the natural world itself.
