The National Academies are establishing a new Climate Communications Initiative (CCI) to facilitate the rapid communication of evidence-based insights to the public and decision makers. CCI will include reports and ongoing activities across the depth and breadth of scientific disciplines to offer authoritative and objective materials and engagement opportunities. CCI is currently seeking individuals to serve on the Advisory Committee to help plan and guide the effort.
To submit a nomination, visit Advisory Committee for the Climate Communications Initiative.
Deadline for nominations is September 15, 2017.
Goals of the initiative are to:
- Address public questions surrounding climate change
- Provide easy access to evidence-based understanding of climate change to help advance the dialogue and inform responses.
- Facilitate rapid and effective communication.
- Apply best practices of science communication, including those identified in Communicating Science Effectively: A Research Agenda (NASEM, 2017).
