Building climate literacy in Australia
The MCCCRH hosts seminar exploring new and exciting research that will allow us to hear extreme weather
The MCCCRH's flagship communication project launches in Melbourne
The MCCCRH awarded Climate Change Innovation Grant by the Victorian State Government
The Monash Climate Change Communication Research Hub conducts social research and leads impact focused projects to build media and policy infrastructure that adequately addresses climate change in Australia.
Our impact-focused projects aim to improve public understanding of climate change by delivering climate information to audiences through existing media infrastructure.
Our research investigates public attitudes towards climate change, how the media reports on climate change, and how Australia currently engages and could further engage with climate science.
The academic and professional members of the MCCCRH are committed to building climate literacy in Australia
The MCCCRH works with a broad range of partners from television networks and local newspapers to other universities.
It was great to discuss the expansion of #ClimateCommunicators with our Victorian #weatherpresenter advisory board yesterday. We’re so excited to be developing this exciting program further in 2019 to make #climatechange information more relevant and accessible for all #climateaction #climatecommunication
The MCCCRH is running an exciting column in Melbourne’s Leader Community News to feature local climate stories. This is an amazing opportunity to share your own experiences to your community in just a few short minutes.
The column "Changing Climates", the first of its kind in Australia, will bring the climate discussion back into the community by publishing your opinions and experiences alongside established climate science. No previous knowledge of climate science or policy is required – we are simply looking for a range of voices and would love to hear from you. Also, please feel free to share in any networks.
While many of us try to stay cool in today's #extremeheat, spare a thought for #AustralianOpen players who are set to compete in some of the hottest conditions we've seen in 10 years.
It was great to work with Weatherzone to produce this #climatecommunication clip examining the warming conditions we're seeing at one of the world's biggest sporting events.
Thank you to our friends at the Climate and Health Alliance for their great work communicating the importance of health related outcomes of climate change.
We look forward to continuing to work with them on this incredibly important, yet often underestimated piece of the climate puzzle.
