About Climate Outreach

We’re placing people at the heart of tackling climate change.

We exist because climate change doesn’t communicate itself, even with the increasing number of climate impacts. We help people understand this complex issue in ways that resonate with their sense of identity, values and worldview. Informed consent and support from people across society and around the world creates what we call a social mandate for climate action – and we believe it’s how real change happens.

Our organisation was founded in 2004 as the first British charity to focus exclusively on public engagement with climate change, and we’re proud of the impact we’ve had.

Have a look at our recent brochure and our 2022/23 Annual review and financial statement.

Find out more about our work in the sections below, as well as the 90 second animated video that follows, introducing our theory of change.

2023 has been an exciting year with the arrival of our new CEO Rachael Orr, new Chair of Trustees Susan Adams, and several new trustees. Our entire team has been involved in a strategy refresh which we will be unveiling by early 2024 at the latest – watch this space!
