International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 07 - 09 Feb 2018 Location: Austria (Graz)

The 2nd World Symposium on Climate Change Communication will focus on “addressing the challenges in communicating climate change across various audiences”, hence providing a platform for reflections on climate change communication research and practice. The Symposium will also offer a concrete contribution towards a better understanding and in catalysing further action to better communicate climate change. Furthermore, the event will serve the purpose of showcasing experiences from research, field projects and best practice to foster climate change communication among various settings and audiences, which may be useful and which could be adapted and replicated elsewhere.

Aims

Consistent with the need for more cross-sectoral interactions among the various stakeholders working in the field of climate change, the aims of the symposium are as follows:

  1. to provide research institutions, universities, NGOs, government and development aid agencies and enterprises from across the world with an opportunity to display and present their works in the field of climate change communication;
  2. to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of climate change communication initiatives and projects, especially successful initiatives and good practice across the world;
  3. to discuss methodological approaches and experiences deriving from case studies and projects, which aim to show how climate change communication may be implemented in practice;
  4. to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities for cooperation.

Last but not least, a further aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences available today. To this purpose, the book "Addressing the Challenges in Communicating Climate Change Across Various Audiences" will be published. The book will provide a comprehensive assessment of the potentials, means and methods to communicate climate change. It will become a well-used resource by environmental managers, policy makers, planners researchers and students, as we continue to work together to address the challenges related to climate change communication.
