Climate Change in the American Mind and Implications for Climate Change Communication

September 6, 2023 @ 5:00 pm


Americans are changing their minds about climate change in a positive direction. While many Americans report pro-climate views and support several climate policies, national action on climate change remains a challenge. This presentation will cover U.S. public opinion about climate change, and the challenges and opportunities for communicating with the public to promote more engagement and collective action on the climate.

About the speaker: Matthew is a Research Specialist at the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication and specializes in social and environmental psychology, research methodology with a specific focus on survey design/methods, and program evaluation. His research focuses on the personal, social, and cultural factors that shape people’s responses to environmental issues, how environments affect people’s health and well-being, and how communicators can leverage this knowledge to more effectively connect with their audiences and support opinion and behavior change.
