The International Communication Pledge (ICP2014) – What is it? A nation for Communication…

The International Communication Project 2014 (ICP2014) aims to spread the word about the vital importance of communication to all aspects of our lives and the critical difference that communication professionals can make – especially when they are involved early.

THE ICP2014 COMMUNICATION PLEDGE  People need to be able to communicate to fulfill their social, educational, emotional and vocational potential. The ICP2014′s global call to action is the Universal Declaration of Communication Rights . The aim is towards ‘building a Nation for Communication’. Right now more than 1.1 million Australians are having trouble communicating with their loved ones. How would you feel if you were unable to communicate? What if you couldn’t ask for a glass of water…or tell someone how you feel? People all over Australia have that experience every day and they need your help to be heard.

Communication is vital to life and communication disorders can take away people’s quality of life.

During the International Communication Project 2014, the goal is to build a Nation for Communication – an Australia where communication in all its forms is recognised and valued.
