This event is the launch of a new report: UK public perception of the co-benefits of climate change action. Contact Neil Jennings to request an advance copy of the report.
Action to tackle climate change can bring a wide range of win-wins (co-benefits) that go beyond just reducing greenhouse gas emissions – climate action can make homes more affordable to heat, improve energy security, improve air quality and health and reduce inequality. But what do the UK public think about these co-benefits?
Join this webinar to hear findings from a new nationwide survey and focus groups that looked at the perceived importance of different co-benefits and how perceptions varied by demographic factors such as age, gender and ethnicity.
The webinar and report should be useful for anyone working or interested in climate change communications and engagement.
The work is funded by the Place-based Climate Action Network.
