C4C’s mission is to create an open knowledge platform that engages the global community in climate change conversation to drive local action. We are making great strides towards this goal- in just six months we have created a Facebook community of more than 250,000 and our weekly online reach is up to 6 million users across multiple social media channels.
Now we are taking on a new challenge: connecting people for deeper conversations and engagement, to generate new ideas and action. C4C will bring together the users, the producers, and the implementers of knowledge - everyone with a stake - for a spirited and stimulating exchange.
The C4C team will host a group of scholars and researchers from leading academic research programs on climate change communication to share their work with you and the C4C global
