Talking Climate - a communication resource
14 May 2012 | News story
Wendy Goldstein, IUCN CEC Deputy Director, recommends this resource to CEC members.
This is a very good resource on climate change communication that links the social science research to practice in communication. A model for CEC on biodiversity?
See George Marshall's video where he talks about talking with people who have dissenting views on climate change by identifying common ground respect >>
- hold your own views - explain what you think
- talk about your personal journey to gain these views
- offer rewards gained from a change in practice
About TALKING CLIMATE
There is a great deal of research on climate change communication. But too often this valuable knowledge doesn’t reach the people who need it most: climate change communicators. At the same time, researchers are often unaware of how to promote their work beyond academic journals.
At Talking Climate, the best research evidence is translated into practical guides on a wide range of topics, ensuring academics and practitioners get the most from climate change communication research.
With a comprehensive and frequently updated database of academic papers, a regular newsletter, and a blog featuring comment and analysis from climate change communication experts, Talking Climate is the gateway to research on climate change communication.
Talking Climate is a UK-based partnership between the Climate Outreach and Information Network (COIN), the Public Interest Research Centre (PIRC) and the ‘Climate change as complex social issue’ research group at the School of Sociology and Social Policy, Nottingham University.
Design, development and maintenance of this website was funded by Nottingham University School of Sociology and Social Policy.
Our US and Canadian partner in climate change communication is Climate Access - the network for those engaging the public in the transformation to low-carbon, resilient communities.
