Emotions in politics: mastering effective communication for progressives
The political right has harnessed the power of emotions to drive their messaging and gain supporters. It’s time for progressives to step up their communications game. Join Tibor Dessewffy, Director of the Digital Sociology Research Center, in this hour-long discussion on leveraging emotions to connect, engage, and mobilize in the realm of European progressive politics and movements.
As we approach a big election year for Europe in 2024, effective communication becomes paramount for progressive political and grassroots organizations. Instead of relying solely on facts and logic, there is an opportunity to harvest the emotional element in messaging to resonate with an audience and spark meaningful action.
Join us for this webinar to re-think your approach to political communication and how it can be more impactful for the progressive movement.
