Communicating Climate Change – Making Evidence Accessible
November 10, 2016 - November 11, 2016£25
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.
Up-to-date understandings on presenting complex scientific information for decision-making, such as data presented in graphs and maps, and through language, will be presented and discussed. Future research goals and opportunities for collaboration will also be explored.
