Topic: Unravelling the social complexity of climate change

Synopsis: Climate change is a challenge for our species - chiefly for social and political reasons. Australia contends with the impacts of climate change atop a legacy of social-political division, which complicates efforts toward effective and enduring policy solutions. However, in recent years dramatic shifts in public opinion polling indicate a step-change in public attitudes toward climate change in Australia. Dr Bec Colvin will discuss ways of understanding and working with the complex social-political dimensions of climate change in Australia that open space for constructive engagement with climate action.
