Low Carbon Behaviours Book

The climate communication organisation Climate Outreach, formerly COIN, has published a book ‘Talking Climate: from research to practice in public engagement’.

The book was written by Adam Corner, Research Director at Climate Outreach, and Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Psychology at Cardiff University, and Jamie Clarke, Executive Director of Climate Outreach. ‘Talking Climate’ is available as an e-book for £29.99.

 

According to the authors, the book:

“…describes a fresh approach to climate change communication: five core principles for public engagement that can propel climate change discourse out of the margins and into the mainstream. The question of how to communicate about climate change, and build public engagement in high-consuming, carbon-intensive Western nations, has occupied researchers, practitioners, and campaigners for more than two decades. During this time, limited progress has been made. Socially and culturally, climate change remains the preserve of a committed but narrow band of activists. Public engagement is stuck in second gear. By spanning the full width of the space between primary academic research and campaign strategies, this book will be relevant for academics, educators, campaigners, communicators and practitioners.”

 

Further information on the book can be found in this Climate Outreach blog post.

 

Climate Outreach’s George Marshall (author of ‘Don’t Even Think About It’) spoke at the recent Climate Challenge Fund Annual Gathering about climate change communications. You can watch the video of his presentation online on the Keep Scotland Beautiful website.
