Workshop on Knowledge Usability attracts participants from different backgrounds to discuss climate science communication

The "JPI Climate Knowledge Usability WORK-Shop" took place on June 17th, 2015, at the premises of the JPI Climate Central Secretariat, in the BELSPO building in Brussels (Belgium). The meeting was chaired and moderated by Rob Swart, Ingrid Coninx (Alterra Wageningen UR, The Netherlands and JPI Climate Working Group 4) and Roger Street (Environmental Change Institute, Oxford University, UK and JPI Climate Working Group 2).

The main aim of this event was to address the barriers that hamper climate knowledge to be usable by stakeholders and in particular policy makers, by exploring outreach and communication strategies.

The workshop attracted 56 participants from different backgrounds, including climate change researchers, boundary workers, policymakers, members of the JPI Climate Transdisciplinary Advisory Board and experts on climate science communication.
