2021 Webinar: From Data to Dialogue: Effective Climate Change Communication
Scientific research informs our understanding of past and future climatic changes and is central to our understanding of the multi-dimensional impacts of climate change on human and natural systems. Despite thousands of peer-reviewed studies and strong scientific consensus on the human-driven nature of current climate change, why do we still see little political will and limited social acceptance and behavior change? Clearly, climate change is not only a science challenge. This talk will briefly outline some learnings from the fields of science and risk communication and explore how we can use a range of communication tools to more effectively catalyze the action needed to confront the climate change challenge head-on.
