Mike Hulme Hosts 'Climate Visuals' at King's
Posted on 14/01/2016
Mike Hulme, professor of climate and culture, is today hosting the launch event at King’s of a new report ‘Climate Visuals’ prepared by the organisation Climate Outreach. The report deals with the challenges of visualising climate change, something which our geography students study and research into. ‘Climate Visuals’ is based on international social research and offers the first evidence-based library of climate photography. Mike Hulme is chairing a panel discussion of visual communication experts from Greenpeace, the European Climate Forum, 10:10 and the University of Brighton.
Climate Visuals is the first evidence based resource for visual climate change communication. Based on research involving thousands of citizens in the UK, US and Germany during 2015, the website centres on 7 key principles for visually communicating climate change. It contains a growing, interactive library of images and an accompanying report to provide inspiration and guidance for journalists, campaigners, bloggers and anyone else using imagery to communicate about climate change. Climate Visuals is the first of its kind.
