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’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
As we finished up our hottest summer on record, last night Paul Higgins (@abcweather) of ABC News looked at how Summer’s average maximum temperature has increased by 1.5C since 1970. #climatecommunicators #climatechange #monashuniversity
