Beverley Adams

Job title:

Postgraduate Researcher

Area of work:

I am exploring the efficacies of creative, narrative approaches to climate change communications with a view to arguing for the value of creative climate communications, not just as a tool to transmit data but as effective communication method with civil society. By observing and understanding the presentations, discussions and debates at COP, I hope to gain insight into how the issue is communicated at policy level, enabling me to clarify my argument for alternative modes of communication to the general public.

What are the big issues that COP28 needs to address? What are your hopes for the negotiations?

Social justice
Public engagement

What’s your message for world leaders at COP28?

We can not buy our way out of the climate and ecological emergency, instead we need fundamental change as to how we inhabit the planet.
