Climate Outreach

Description

Climate Outreach seeks to overcome denial and educate the British public about Climate Change in order to safeguard the future of the environment. Formed in 2004, Climate Outreach (formerly COIN) has always been innovative; and much of our pioneering work has subsequently been taken up by the wider climate change movement. Since then we have become known for our series of training events which we have delivered to groups as varied as district councils and women's institutes. We have recently been selected to manage the well-established Carbon Conversations project which, in a non-threatening but challenging way, guides people towards reducing their carbon footprints. Our other two main current projects are

Language and discourse
We are forging a positive and progressive discourse on climate change. A more optimistic and confident understanding will encourage and enable more action.

Defending Rights
This project seeks to build a platform for civil society engagement on environmental migration. At present there are significant gaps in the legal and policy frameworks to protect those at risk of displacement linked to climate change. Climate Outreach has successfully brought together into the UK Climate Change Migration Forum disparate groups from across the human rights, development, humanitarian and environmental sectors.
