Building climate literacy in Australia
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.
The MCCCRH has been named as a finalist in the Education category of the Premier’s Sustainability Awards for our work establishing 25 hyperlocal climate columns in Leader Community News in 2019, a project funded by the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
