Representing the majority and not the minority: the importance of the individual in communicating climate change

Sam Illingworth et al.

Data sets

Climate Communication Project: Representing the Majority questionnaire asking participants about their attitudes towards climate change S. Illingworth

Short summary
Climate change is real, it is happening now, and it will not be stopped by the sole efforts of scientists. This study shows how poetry and open conversation can be used to develop a dialogue around mitigating climate change with different communities, including faith groups and people living with disabilities. Furthermore, it shows how this dialogue can help us to better understand the opportunities that these communities present in tackling the negative effects of human-made climate change.
