Communicating Climate Change: achieving richer public engagement

Wednesday 28 March 2012 - Challenges to Progress, 10:30

Room 11

Chaired by Asher Minns, Joe Smith and Lorraine Whitmarsh

Convenors: Asher Minns, Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research; Joe Smith, Open University; Lorraine Whitmarsh, Cardiff University

We explore across disciplines and cultures the relationships between science, media and public engagement and what we can do to improve deliberation of climate change. How can we enhance interest? How can we be effective in communicating what is and is not known? What forms of communication best support understanding and inclusive debate, and above all action?
