Engaging the Public with Climate Change
Engaging the Public with Climate Change: behaviour change and communication
Edited by Lorraine Whitmarsh, Saffron O'Neill and Irene Lorenzoni with a foreword by Susanne Moser
About this book
Despite increasing public awareness of climate change, our behaviours relating to consumption and energy use remain largely unchanged. This book answers the urgent call for effective engagement methods to foster sustainable lifestyles, community action, and social change.
Written by practitioners and academics, the chapters combine theoretical perspectives with case studies and practical guidance, examining what works and what doesn't, and providing transferable lessons for future engagement approaches. Showcasing innovative thought and approaches from around the world, this book is essential reading for anyone working to foster real and lasting behavioural and social change.
"This book is not just an excellent synthesis of the latest research - it contains, at all levels, a very welcome exchange of experience between the leading academics, communications specialists and community practitioners. I cannot think of anyone involved in public engagement who would not benefit from reading it."—George Marshall, founder, Climate Outreach and Information Network.
"By offering a powerful combination of theoretical and practical case studies, Engaging the Public with Climate Change helps professionals and students alike to recognise climate change communication which empowers behaviour change rather than preaches it."—Mike Hulme, professor of climate change, University of East Anglia.
