Produced by the Climate Change Education Partnership (CCEP) Alliance, the Climate Change Education: Effective Practices for Working with Educators, Scientists, Decision Makers, and the Public guide provides recommendations for effective education and communication practices when working with different types of audiences. While effective education has been traditionally defined as the acquisition of knowledge, Alliance programs maintain a broader definition of “effective” to include the acquisition and use of climate change knowledge to inform decision-making.

A full version of the guide is available on the CCEP Alliance site.
