The Hub establishes a node in Malaysia

Professor Matthew Nicholson, Vice President (Research and Development), Monash University Malaysia has just announced that a node of MCCCRH will be established in Malaysia.

Through this partnership we are very excited to be working with our colleagues in the School of Arts and Social Science and the School of Science at Monash Malaysia to research climate communications in Southeast Asia.This development is also part of our ambition to train Universities that are members of the International Universities Climate Alliance in how to deliver effective communications programs within their national settings.Delivering communications programs from Monash Malaysia is an important first step in this venture and will provide a strong combination of expertise for understanding how to operationalise climate communications in South East Asia.

Monash Malaysia is strategically located in the ASEAN region as well as one the earth’s largest biomes, and carbon sinks, for which lasting environmental protection is a high priority.You can read further details on this announcement here.
