Environmental barriers to communication are any part of the environment or surroundings that can prevent communication or getting in touch with another person or something else. There are a huge number of environmental barriers to communication.
Time/ Place/ Space/ Climate and Noise are the generally accepted barriers to communication. These factors are powerful enough to block or alter the communication of a message completely.
  • Time:
Time lag and the amount of time it takes for a message to travel across the world is one of the most major barriers to communication and how things are communicated. Communication and the speed of communication is the most major factor. The modern world has seen huge leaps in the speed of communication in the recent years.
  • Space
The space in between the communications and the size of the area is also a major factor in the process of communication. Space can act as a barrier and an aid to communication
  • Place:
The place is also a factor that affects suitability of the communications on offer. For example a place that has a bad environment and causes people to be irritable can cause people to lack in the communication end as they are unhappy. In the opposite side of things a good environment can lead to calmer and better communication between people.
  • Climate
Warm weather or cold weather can cause affects on people's perceptions and their abilities to make decisions. Different climates affect people's views in different ways and can be a barrier to communication caused by environment.
  • Noise
Oise is also a barrier to communication as if there is too much noise it can irritate people and they may not be able to hear each other. A quiet calm place and environment can be the best for communication.
