International Climate Change Information Programme
World Symposium on Climate Change Communication

Wed 22nd February 2017 - Fri 24th February 2017, Manchester, UK

Consistent with the need for more cross–sectoral interactions among the various stakeholders working in the field of climate change, the aims of the “World Symposium on Climate Change Communication” are as follo

  • I.   to provide research institutions, universities, NGOs, cultural institutions, 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; 
  • II.  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;
  • III.  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;
  • IV.  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 “Handbook of Climate Change Communication”will be published. The Handbook will provide the most comprehensive assessment of the potentials, means and methods to communicate climate change ever produced. 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. 

The Handbook, similar to the “Handbook of Climate Change Adaptation” published in 2015 will be a further volume of the award–winning book series “Climate Change Management” published by Springer,  which since its creation in 2008 has become the  world´s leading book series on climate change management. The decision of the editors as to which papers may be selected and undergo peer review for the book is final.
