Communicating Climate Change – Making Evidence Accessible

November 10, 2016 - November 11, 2016

How can scientific and technical evidence about climate change be made more accessible to diverse audiences to support their decision-making?

This two-day interdisciplinary workshop in London UK, organised by the School of Psychology, University of East Anglia, will bring together expertise from the cognitive science, psychology, climate science and policy-making communities, with the goal of improving accessibility to climate science evidence.
