Communicating Climate Research: engaging with policymakers

Tuesday 18 February 2020, 12:00-13:00
School of Earth and Environment Seminar Room 8.119b

Communicating effectively with policymakers is essential if climate research is to be translated into climate policy and result in change on the ground. And unfortunately it’s not quite as easy as sending them your latest journal publication.

So what is the best way to engage with busy civil servants? And who should you be engaging with?

In this seminar we’ll hear from Dr Cat Scott and Anya Schlich-Davies, both of whom completed recent secondments at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, working with the Climate Science team. They’ll share insights from their experiences and offer some thoughts about how best to get your research across to those developing climate policy.


This is part of Communicating Climate Research seminar series. Later seminars will examine engagement with the press & media, with young people, and with industry.
