Scientists ground their work in the best possible evidence, and we believe the way that scientists and science communicators engage with the public should be based on the same approach.
In the latest of our Science Communication resources, we summarise and synthesise key trends, themes and findings in the field of environmental science communication.
The report introduces the key organisations involved in international science communication, discussing their changing role in a period characterised by political polarisation and lost faith in expertise. It also explores and provides insight into progress that has been achieved, challenges that remain, and gaps and opportunities for further research.
This new report, originally commissioned by Swedish environmental research foundation Mistra, complements our three existing practical resources for better climate science communication: one designed for IPCC scientists, one for early career researchers, and one focused on how to better communicate climate science uncertainty.
