Climate Outreach is interested in joining an academic consortium applying for the UKRI’s Resilient UK Coastal Communities and Seas Network Plus. We are a research and engagement organisation with 20 years experience engaging UK communities on climate change, and helping organisations and institutions engage with them more meaningfully.
We believe that coastal communities and livelihoods are important spaces for place based work and transdisciplinary work on climate engagement and action. For example, we recently ran a global initiative called ‘Ocean Visuals’, which focussed on engaging the public through photography on the intersections of the ocean, coastal livelihoods and climate change. We have also worked with communities and organisations across the UK (and in other countries) to understand from their perspectives, what kinds of narrative frames, messages and images work to draw them into positive and collaborative engagement on climate change – see Britain Talks Climate. We apply these insights through innovation partnerships, as well, where we work with cohorts or individual organisations on their engagement strategies and plans.
We have had the privilege of being on academic consortiums before – for example the Centre for Climate and Social Transformations (CAST). But we also know that for NGOs like ourselves, Universities need to know we have capacity and interest to join consortiums as a partner. So – we are putting out our interest and intention into the world, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to work with us!
