Media Guidelines: “How to Talk About Climate Change so That You are Understood”

The object of the study comprises the methods, platforms and formats of coverage of topics related to climate change. My idea is to create guidelines with: 1) a set of the most popular questions about what climate change is and why it is so important (answers for “dummies”), 2) the best practices (texts, speeches, films) of coverage of this topic in European media (magazines, videos, online media), 3) a series of interviews with European experts on scientific communication about the successes and failures in covering the topic of climate change.
