Charlie is an experienced communications specialist with a track record in engaging policymakers on climate and environment issues. He is adept at taking dry, complex policy and making it relevant and accessible, while respecting the nuance and quality of the original content. His approach involves understanding key audiences, what they want, and how they will be most receptive to information or messaging. He’s in his element working across a range of media – from online, to film, to print.
Before joining di:ga Charlie was Senior Communications Officer at the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), where he ran communications for the organisation’s climate and environment programmes. Prior to that, he worked for the Climate and Development Knowledge Network and the Low Emission Development Strategies Global Partnership. Alongside di:ga Charlie is studying an MSc at the University of Bristol. He’s researching the links between social change, media narratives and the climate emergency.
"di:ga were strategic, thoughtful and attentive throughout the project. From the very start, they got what we are working to do and it was clear they wanted us to succeed. They generated, and prepared us for, significantly greater awareness and public participation in our work. They're a great team and we loved working with them."
