In order to spark new climate conversations, we run and contribute to a wide range of public events.
Seminar: Climate Conversations – Edinburgh, 2 March 2017
In 2016 the Scottish Government, in partnership with a number of organisations, initiated a series of Climate Conversations to encourage a public discussion on climate change. 20 trial conversations have now been held.
This seminar will be an opportunity to discover key findings from these climate conversations as well as learn more about the materials and how to use them to encourage discussion and action on climate change.
These materials were produced by Climate Outreach and include a ‘How To’ Guide and associated images as well as three reports on the research behind the ‘How To’ Guide.
Launch event: European Perceptions of Climate Change results - London, 8 March 2017
Join us for the much anticipated results of a major European survey of climate change and energy beliefs in Great Britain, Germany, France and Norway. This two year project is being lead by Cardiff University, with an inter-disciplinary project team including Climate Outreach. It is funded by the Joint Programming Initiative (JPI).
Adam Corner of Climate Outreach will also lead a workshop in the afternoon to explore the implications of the findings for future efforts to engage European publics with climate change.

The theme of this year’s conference is impact - science communication with and for society.
