Building climate literacy in Australia

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.
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.
It’s been a cracking start to 2019 here at the MCCCRH and this has been in large part due to these two wonderful people joining our team. Remy Shergill has joined us as the Project Manager of our Changing Climates column, and James Goldie has come on board us as our Knowledge Broker, working between us and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. We look forward to a great year ahead with these two putting their talents to work all in the name of #climatecommunication

In addition to being the hottest on record, the Summer of 2018/2019 was also quite dry for Melbourne. February in particular saw a continuation of the trend we’re seeing in dry days, as @janebunnofficial of @7newsmelbourne looked at last night. #climatecommunicators #climatechange #monashuniversity
