Dr Sarah Hemstock, Programme Leader for Geography at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU), has been involved in a new publication focused on improving communication on the subject of climate change.
‘Addressing the Challenges in Communicating Climate Change Across Various Audiences’ offers a concrete contribution towards a better understanding of climate change communication. Its ultimate aim is to help catalyse the sort of cross-sectoral action needed to address the phenomenon of climate change and its many consequences.
Dr Hemstock’s contribution is a chapter examining the efforts being made by the inhabitants of the Pacific Islands to adapt to and survive climate change. Co-authored with Stuart Capstick – part of the School of Psychology and Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at Cardiff University – ‘Communicating Climate Change: Reactions to Adapt and Survive Exhibition and Visitors’ Thoughts About Climate Change in the Pacific Islands Region’ explores how traditional/local knowledge/wisdom and artistic/social activities such as drama, visual arts, and dance have been amongst the most successful methods of communicating climate change awareness.
This latest contribution follows Dr Hemstock’s earlier involvement in another book on climate change. As a part of ‘A Critical Approach to Climate Change Adaptation: Discourses, Policies and Practices’ Dr Hemstock investigated ways of improving the prospect for climate change adaptation in the Pacific Islands Region (PIR) via formal education along with the increasing recognition by practitioners and policy makers working across the globe of the importance of bringing together disaster risk management (DRM) and climate change adaptation (CCA).
And in April next year BGU are bringing the battle against climate change to Lincoln as the hosts of the International Symposium on Climate Change and the Role of Education.
Organised in partnership between BGU, the International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP), Hamburg University of Applied Scientists and the Baltic University Programme; the Symposium is setting out to explore how society can adapt the far reaching effects of climate change to overcome the challenges it poses along with the crucial role Education plays in engaging and empowering people to act to alleviate the impacts of the climate change.
