UKCIP and ECI, in collaboration with Mediaplanet, have launched the campaign 'Climate Change: What's next?', with the aim to encourage more public debate about the impacts of climate change on their families, communities and businesses, and understand the opportunities for adaptation.
A social media 'thunderclap', at 1pm on 7 December, marked the start of the digital campaign, when 180 people supported it on twitter and facebook.
More than 330,000 people were reached with the 'Climate change: what's next?' campaign message, and a further 166,000 Guardian readers received the affiliated supplement, which was supported by Christiana Figueres, as well as the All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPG) on Climate Change.
Articles published include a number of contributions from ECI researchers; Professor Jim Hall, Professor Nick Eyre, Professor Benito Müller, Patrick Pringle and Dr Rachel James (see links, right). The full selection of articles, on a broad range of topics including infrastructure, adaptation, climate finance, the 1.5C target, and much more, can be found online at www.globalhealthaction.co.uk.
