On January 18, we invite you to an event featuring distinguished University Professor Edward Maibach, Director of the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University—a university-based “think-and-do tank.” Professor Maibach will illuminate some key insights into public understanding of climate communication that have emerged from the Yale/George Mason “Climate Change in the American Mind” surveys conducted twice yearly since 2008. He will also discuss his center’s initiatives to activate and support trusted climate communicators in communities across America including TV weather casters, health professionals, and conservatives who are concerned about climate change. This event is a unique opportunity to engage with a leading expert on climate communication and its role in cultivating public and political will for climate solutions.
