An ambitious research project to better understand how Australians feel, think and act when it comes to climate change.
About Climate Compass
Climate Compass builds a comprehensive understanding of attitudes Australians hold on climate change and how people are prepared to take action. An initiative of The Sunrise Project, the research enables engaging, high-impact strategies and campaigns to accelerate the necessary shift from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy.
The centrepiece of Climate Compass is a segmentation of Australian audiences based on their attitudes and beliefs about climate change.
Climate Compass project is led by a reference group of communications and campaigning professionals from some of Australia’s largest research and environmental organisations.
Academic Advisory Panel
Climate Compass is overseen by a panel of Australian and international experts and academics in climate change communications, behaviour change communications, social change and psychology.
