How climate and environmental data can be used as a communication tool: a workshop for ECRs

You are invited to take part in the UCL Climate Action Unit’s workshop for Early Career Researchers working with climate and environmental data.


Researchers who produce and analyse climate and other environmental data are tasked with an important challenge: to provide information that explains how human activities are altering the planet. The expectation to meet this challenge can feel huge. And yet, for early career researchers in particular, little training is provided to help navigate it.

At this workshop in London on 5 July 2023, the UCL Climate Action Unit will explore the role of data experts in the communication of climate and environmental change through a case study developing new metrics to communicate what is happening with climate change right now.

As part of the workshop we will explore:

  • the purpose of metrics in climate and environmental communication
  • the range of professionals involved the production of climate and environmental information (scientists, communicators and designers)
  • the changes needed to build better metrics in the future

Join us to discover the challenges of effectively using scientific data in communication, and opportunities for making them better through your research.


This in-person event takes place on 5th July 2023, 14:00-17:00 (GMT+1) at the following address:

Bentham House

4-8 Endsleigh Gardens
