*Call for Papers for ICA Regional Conference on Climate and Communication*

FCCU's Department of Mass Communication is honored to host the prestigious ICA Regional Conference this December, marking a significant milestone as ICA's first-ever convention in Pakistan.

We are grateful to have the Association of Media and Communication Academic Professionals (AMCAP) ( <>) who are collaborating with us for the event.

The International Communication Association (ICA) Regional Conference in Lahore, Pakistan, invites papers on ‘Climate and Communication’ for the ICA’s Regional Convention to be held in Forman Christian College (A Chartered University), Lahore on November 21st and 22nd, 2024. We would especially like to encourage submissions on topics related to climate change and communication that will stir up debates, motivate scholars, and foster collaborations for the future. The theme of this event will revolve around an array of questions such as: (a) What can/should be the role of communication to create an increased awareness among masses for climate-induced hazards, (b) what role can/should climate journalism play in creating an appetite for climate-related news in the audience? (c) What remedial measures can/should be offered by social justice-driven activism in communication? (d) How can global and local scholarly communities work together to offset the disproportionate burden of global warming on the global south? (e) How can communication be used effectively to bring meaningful changes? ICA Regional in Pakistan is a hybrid event allowing in-person and online participation.

We invite scholars, researchers, practitioners, and students to contribute to this global discourse by submitting their papers for one of the following Conference Divisions:

- Climate Activism and Social Justice

- Gender, Race, Ethnicity, Class and Climate Communication

- Decolonizing Climate Narratives: Justice, Equity, and Global Responsibility

- Environmental Communication

- Health Communication

- Risk/Crisis Communication

- Science Communication
