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), the Understanding Risk group at Cardiff University 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, and the cre­ation and devel­op­ment of the data­base was funded by the Understanding Risk group at Cardiff University – spe­cific­ally Nick Pidgeon’s Climate Leader Professorial Fellowship from the Economic and Social Research Council.

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.
