Help us place people at the heart of addressing climate change to create a broad social mandate for climate action! With your support, our team can continue to draw on a robust evidence base and over 15 years of practical experience to drive public engagement with climate change – a key part of the puzzle for tackling this global challenge.

Achieving rapid social change requires people’s consent and participation or it will not succeed. Climate advocates increasingly recognise that the social science of climate communication is as important as climate science. This is precisely our area of expertise, and we’re passionate about helping organisations that can make a big difference in tackling climate change apply our evidence-based, practical insights.

A message for individual donors

Have you found our Britain Talks Climate resources useful? something you wish more people knew about? Funding from individuals gives us the freedom to put resources where they are needed the most. It allows us to innovate and achieve the greatest impact. Setting up a regular gift or a making a one-off donation will enable us to reach even more more people with our Britain Talks Climate insights as well as pilot the next, new, big thing to drive public engagement with climate change.

We help governments, international bodies, charities and businesses move past assumptions and apply tried-and-tested approaches on how to engage their specific audiences. Learn more about the impact of our work in our 2019 Annual Review.

With your support we will achieve our three key aims:

  • build and sustain cross-society support for climate action in nations critical for global decarbonisation
  • overcome political polarisation in those countries where it is impeding action on climate change
  • turn concern into action on key behaviours, policies and corporate responsibility 

Philanthropy

We build long-term relationships with the individuals, trusts and foundations who want to work with us to drive public engagement with climate change. 

Almost 80% of our work is funded by our philanthropic donors. Their support ranges from contributing toward our day-to-day running costs to funding specific projects – bringing about the change we all want to see in how societies tackle climate change. 

Climate Outreach’s vision and approach bring about change that most people would have considered impossible. Their research leads the way in engaging people from across society on climate change, with impressive success. Their impact is wide reaching, working alongside key stakeholders and championing voices across the world."

Donations from individual supporters allow us the freedom and flexibility to operate in the way other funding does not. Your donations allow us to innovate and achieve the biggest impact possible.

Regular gifts in particular are crucially important to our work as they help us to plan for our future with a more predictable income.

As a science teacher, the insights from psychology that Climate Outreach provide and their Climate Visuals resources are helping me show children how climate change is relevant to their lives and what they can do about it. I'm a supporter because I hope and believe all of this will improve our ability to work together across political divides and towards solutions."
