The scientific case for climate change has been made, and solutions for reducing emissions are now readily available. However, there is a significant action gap between what the scientific evidence shows must be done to prevent the worst impacts of climate change, and what we are currently doing.
This programme is working on the basis that it is the social and political dimensions of implementing the solutions to the climate change problem that are at the heart of this action gap and that the development of strategic narratives is key in unlocking this action and creating momentum.
