Climate Outreach have joined with academics and other NGOs to undertake a project to understand and evaluate existing expertise in the UK on communicating and engaging the public with climate change. The Climate Communication Project, which is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council as part of their Engaging Environments call. A survey of the climate communication community forms part of this project and will allow us to understand how a range of specialists carry out their work, to share and promote best practice in the UK, and to point to areas where more investment and attention is needed.
We are interested to hear from people in the UK with knowledge and experience of communicating and engaging the public with climate change, including the communication of climate science, public engagement around climate or energy policy, the application of social science understanding, and creative approaches to engagement.
We are seeking the views of people working in research, for a charity, the public sector, in the arts, or elsewhere, in the UK. The survey contains questions about the type of work you do, your views on communicating and engaging the public with climate change (e.g. what is appropriate and what is effective), and asks about your experiences of different activities used to do so.
For more information and to complete the survey visit The Climate Communication Project Survey.
The survey should take around 20 minutes to complete, depending on the level of detail you provide. The deadline for responses is Friday 30th March 2018.
Thank you in advance for completing or circulating the survey
