In order to spark new climate conversations, we run and speak at a wide range of public events, both offline and online.
The event is sold out - a recording will be made available after 8th October 2020.
This webinar will bring together the research team from the RESIL RISK project, including Dr Adam Corner, to discuss pre- and post-Covid survey findings on public perceptions of climate risk and adaptation, and the implications for effective public engagement on these issues.
The RESIL RISK project is a collaboration between Cardiff University and Climate Outreach, as part of the UK Climate Resilience joint programme. The programme draws together UK climate research and expertise to deliver climate risk and adaptation solutions research to ensure the UK is resilient to climate variability and change.

Summarising polling and narrative testing conducted in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, our Programmes & Research Director Dr Adam Corner will describe the key principles for effectively communicating climate change.
Drawing on two decades of social science research, and reflecting on the unique challenges (and space for fresh thinking) created by Covid-19, the presentation will make the case for careful, evidence-based public engagement that can both build a social mandate for climate change and respect the sensitivities of communities impacted by the pandemic.
