Climate Change Communication in Australia

Our mission is to apply research strategies from media studies, journalism studies, sociology, political science and climate science to improve public understanding of climate change. Rigorous research of climate change reporting, public attitudes and the communication practices of climate scientists will identify what is needed to effectively inform all Australians of the dangers of, and solutions to, climate change. In doing so, we also aim to improve the communication of the economic and health impacts of climate change, and understand the urban, rural and gendered experience of it.
