The Climate Advocacy Lab sits at the nexus of the climate research and advocacy, guiding conversations between sectors and equipping advocates with evidence from scholars – and other practitioners – in order to work more effectively. In this talk, Jack will discuss the value of research in guiding climate advocacy and opportunities for scholars to plug into the wider climate movement.
The Yale Program on Climate Change Communication studies the causes and consequences of public opinion and behavior, and helps governments, media, companies, and advocates communicate more effectively.
