Climate Visuals is an evidence-based resource for climate change communication.

Climate Visuals is a world first: an evidence-based resource for visual climate change communication, based on social research with thousands of people in three countries. The website contains a growing library of photographs to provide inspiration and guidance for campaigners, picture editors and communications practitioners selecting imagery for communicating climate change.

How we can work with you

The research behind Climate Visuals

 

This video provides a 4-minute snapshot of our very first Climate Visuals masterclass in London in September 2017, featuring perspectives from participants and speakers. The masterclasses are an opportunity to increase your knowledge and learn the skills to catalyse a more diverse and compelling visual language for climate change. We are currently scheduling future Climate Visuals masterclasses - do sign up to our newsletter to receive updates!

New: Gender and Climate Change gallery

This gallery illustrates how women are often disproportionately affected by climate change due to differing gender roles and existing gender inequalities - but also celebrates women as leaders, innovators and agents of change. It recognises the important role that gender plays in mediating the impacts of climate change, and people’s capacity to respond to it.

It was curated to mark Gender Day at the UN climate change conference in Bonn (COP23), and accompanied by this guest blog on the gender-climate link.

 

Interview with photographer Barbara Dombrowski

On the eve of the United Nations 23rd climate change conference (UNFCCC) in Bonn, Germany, Climate Visuals spoke with German photographer Barbara Dombrowski. Ms. Dombrowski will be hosting an exhibition of her photography project Tropic Ice at the Künstlerforum during the conference. Tropic Ice combines portraits from the Amazon and Greenland’s indigenous peoples to “connect the two extreme climate zones” and to raise awareness about the people affected by climate change and our connections to them.
