The need for effective communication, public outreach, and education to increase support for policy, collective action and behavior change is ever present, and is perhaps most pressing in the context of anthropogenic climate change.
This book is the first to take a comprehensive look at communication and social change specifically targeted to climate change. It is a unique collection of ideas examining the challenges associated with communicating climate change in order to facilitate societal response. It offers well-founded, practical suggestions on how to communicate climate change and how to approach related social change more effectively. The contributors of this book come from a diverse range of backgrounds, from government and academia to non-governmental and civic sectors of society.
'This book is packed with useful information.' The Psychologist '... I could not put this book down. it is filled with solid and practical information and guidelines and good common sense for any businessman who needs to know and communicate about climate change and may also have to interact with his various stake holders (including communities) on climate change. This is an excellent informing book that is a must for the reference shelf - highly recommended.' Eagle Bulletin 'Moser and Dilling ... work successfully to stitch together themes across the chapter contributions: countless parenthetical cross-references to other chapters and passages as well as a useful index, build useful bridges for the readers. The volume capably pursues, appraises, interrogates and refines vital challenges on the current state of communications about climate change, and discusses future directions and possibilities.'
