Partner institution – CAST

Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, CAST is a £5 million research centre that explores how we can live differently to achieve the rapid and far-reaching emissions cuts required to address climate change.

While there is now strong international momentum on action to tackle climate change, it is clear that critical targets (such as keeping global temperature rise to well within 2 degrees Celsius relative to pre-industrial levels) will be missed without fundamental transformations across all parts of society.

The Centre’s aim is to advance our understanding of how to transform lifestyles, organisations and social structures in order to achieve a low-carbon future, which is genuinely sustainable over the long term.

Centre researchers are based at university sites in Bath, Cardiff, Manchester, York and East Anglia and at Climate Outreach.  The Centre partners with practitioners (e.g. Greener-UK, China Centre for Climate Change Communication, Possible), policy-makers (e.g. Welsh Government, Greater Manchester Combined Authority) and companies (e.g. Anglian Water, Wates Construction) to develop and test new ways of engaging with the public, governments and businesses in the UK.
