Learning Exchanges and Webinars
We invite the community of scholars, practitioners and students interested in using the lens of CMM and taking a communication perspective to help address issues and challenges our world is currently facing to take part in our learning exchanges and webinars.
We hold an annual Learning Exchange in which we aim to create a learning environment of support to explore and share new developments, understandings and practices around a timely and relevant common theme. This Learning Exchange is typically held in September or October of each year, alternating between the United States and Europe. When opportunity arises, we also endeavour to hold such Exchanges in collaboration with other like-minded organisations.
We also hold occasional webinars during the year to reach out to our large international community. These webinars are held on topics of contemporary relevance and challenge.
All of our learning exchanges and webinars are opportunities to experience CMM in action and to develop stronger relationships with others around the globe who are working in their spheres of influence to help make better social worlds.
