Building climate literacy in Australia
The MCCCRH launches Australia's first dedicated climate column to 1.5 million weekly readers in Melbourne
MCCCRH invited to present climate communication programs at the United Nations Climate Change Conference
MCCCRH hosts seminar exploring new and exciting research that allows us to hear extreme weather
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.

We can't believe it - a year of #ClimateCommunicators on Victorian screens! Special thanks to @lilydambrosiomp for joining us yesterday and for her poignant words on the need for fact-based #climatecommunication.
Special thanks also to our amazing Melbourne presenters, @janebunnofficial of @7newsmelbourne & Paul Higgins (@abcweather) of @abcnews_au for pioneering #climatecommunication on Australian television. Here’s to continuing to help Australians better understand #climatechange.
Particular thanks must also go to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (@delwp_vic) and the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation for their incredible support of this Australian-first program.
And lastly, to our colleagues from @csirogram, @bureauofmeteorology, @amospix, @Scientell_au, @mfjmonash, @monash.arts and the broader @monash_uni team, thank you for your unwavering support - this has been a truly collaborative effort.
It was great to visit #Darwin last week for the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society's 2019 conference. We relished the opportunity to engage with Australia's leading climate scientists and lead workshops on the challenges and opportunities of communicating #climatechange in Australia #AMOS2019 #climatecommunication @amospix
EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT: We are delighted to share that our flagship program, #ClimateCommunicators, had its debut broadcast in Queensland earlier in the week, with @7newsqueensland’s @tonyauden presenting on an increase in the number of days above 30C that Queenslanders have been experiencing recently. #climatechange #climatecommunication #weather #monashuniversity @monash_uni @monashscience @monash.arts @mfjmonash
If you thought the warm weather was extending well into Autumn, you’d be right! Check out @janebunnofficial looking at how we’re averaging significantly more days above 20 degrees during March than we did back in the 70s. #climatecommunicators #climatechange @7newsmelbourne @monash_uni @monash.arts @mfjmonash @monashscience
