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 The Honorable Lily D'Ambrosio MP, Minister for Energy, Environment & Climate Change for joining us yesterday and for her kind words of support on our Australian-first program.
No thanks would be complete without the most special of mentions to our fabulous Melbourne presenters, Jane Bunn of 7NEWS Melbourne and Paul Higgins of ABC News for pioneering #climatecommunication on Australian television. We look forward to continuing to work together to help Victorians better understand climate change.
This program would not have been able to grown into what it has without the tremendous support of the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation.
And lastly, to our colleagues from CSIRO, Bureau of Meteorology, AMOS, Scientell, Monash's School of Media, Film and Journalism, Monash Arts and the broader Monash University 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
In partnership with the Royal Society of Victoria and Monash's School of Media, Film and Journalism, we are delighted to present "Communicating Science in a Post Normal World."
Join us on Friday the 7th of June as we explore how to navigate a rapidly evolving scientific landscape at a time where public trust in science is shifting.
Hear a keynote address from Professor Mike Schäfer (The University of Zurich), who will then join panellists Professor David Karoly and Dr Linden Ashcroft to explore this process, highlight the challenges and identify future directions for science communication.
Limited free tickets are available at the Eventbrite link below.
We are delighted to announce that our flagship program, #ClimateCommunicators had its debut broadcast in Queensland earlier in the week, with 7NEWS Brisbane's Tony Auden presenting on an increase in the number of days above 30C that Queenslanders have been experiencing recently.
