As Director of Research and Content at Climate Access, I have the pleasure of tracking the latest and greatest research related to climate communications and public engagement. As we enter a new year, I have selected not-to-miss resources from 2015 to help shape your outreach efforts over the next 12 months. Three trends emerged from this key research that echo the advice we regularly deliver at Climate Access: Focus on solutions, make it personal and show the concrete benefits of climate action.
