Our team combines highly respected researchers with communication specialists working together to provide accessible and evidence-based advice and training.

We offer consultancy and training services adapted to the needs of our clients. Our services range from strategic guidance for governments running major campaigns to interactive workshops for charities. We aim to support the best possible strategic decision-making around target audiences, narratives and messaging.

Taking the country and the world to net zero is a necessary but daunting challenge. As scientists we have a tendency to persuade by piling on the numbers and it doesn’t often work. This is where Climate Outreach can save us. By making a science out of climate communication, they ensure the right audiences get the right messages to drive action towards a more resilient net zero future.”

Professor Piers Forster - Committee on Climate Change (CCC)

We work in the public, private, charity and cultural sectors across the world through:

Strategic review and guidance 

Operating as a ‘critical friend’, we provide an external review of strategies, research methodologies, communications materials and outputs. Our reviews identify strengths, weaknesses and threats and provide detailed recommendations for improvements.

Communications strategy design

We assist clients in designing comprehensive communications strategies, working with them to identify and hone their objectives, audiences and narratives, and also designing research projects to inform and test their messaging. 

Training, workshops and webinars

We have delivered hundreds of training workshops to governments and civil society organisations around the world. These include masterclasses in the theory and practice of climate change communications, collaborative workshops for specific audiences and networks, and skills training in research and message design.

Some specific offerings include:

  • For climate experts and researchers, our Public engagement training for climate experts workshop is designed to empower and equip participants to speak confidently about climate change outside of academia.
  • For UK climate campaigners, our Climate Engagement Lab is designed to help UK civil society organisations turn our insights into impactful engagement campaigns. 

Presentations and keynotes

Our directors and programme leads speak frequently at conferences, webinars and events. As communications specialists we work hard to ensure that our presentations are always engaging and focused.
