Climate change communication in practice: how are we engaging the UK public on climate change?


What should the aim of engagement on climate change be? What principles should underpin the way it is carried out? What do climate communication practitioners agree on and disagree on?

This report acts as a barometer for the current state of UK climate engagement and provides best practice recommendations.

Part of our collaboration on The Climate Communication Project and funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), it brings together the key findings from a survey of 178 climate communicators and a one day ‘expert elicitation’ workshop.

In particular, the report explores what climate communication practitioners agree on and disagree on.

Adam Corner has a starring role in this video by Youtuber ClimateAdam, released to coincide with GreenGB Week and the new IPCC 1.5C Special Report. The video was commissioned by the Climate Communication Project, a collaboration we’re a part of that brings together academics and practitioners working in public engagement on climate change. The video has won a comedy & climate award from the University of Colorado Boulder’s Inside the Greenhouse.
