Monash Climate Change Communication Research Hub

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.

By applying research strategies from media studies, journalism studies, sociology, political science and climate science, we seek to improve public understanding of climate change. We do this by partnering with mainstream media entities such as television networks and community newspapers to deliver localised climate information to large audiences in meaningful ways. We also conduct rigorous research into public attitudes towards climate change, and ways to better communicate climate solutions, as social research in these areas is imperative to delivering the most effective communication programs.
