Despite increasing public awareness of climate change, our behaviours relating to consumption and energy use remain largely unchanged. This book answers the urgent call for effective engagement methods to foster sustainable lifestyles, community action, and social change. Written by practitioners and academics, the chapters combine theoretical perspectives with case studies and practical guidance, examining what works and what doesn't, and providing transferable lessons for future engagement approaches. Showcasing innovative thought and approaches from around the world, this book is essential reading for anyone working to foster real and lasting behavioural and social change.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'How do we break out of the hardened habits of mind and practice which prevent us from addressing climate change - and do so soon? This book is an important contribution to help answer this question. It offers many and encouraging, but no quick and easy answers to help create effective ways of engaging people while we still have hope of steering our journey in a desirable direction.' Susanne Moser, Independent Scholar, Susanne Moser Research & Consulting 'This book is not just an excellent synthesis of the latest research - it contains, at all levels, a very welcome exchange of experience between the leading academics, communications specialists and community practitioners. I cannot think of anyone involved in public engagement who would not benefit from reading it.' George Marshall, Founder, Climate Outreach and Information Network 'This book successfully addresses many of the complex cultural and behavioural issues tied up with responding to climate change. It provides practical guides to motivating public engagement, as well as discussing many of the barriers. It is a 'must read' for everyone, from climate scientists to policy advisers.' Professor David Karoly, University of Melbourne, Australia 'By offering a powerful combination of theoretical and practical case studies, Engaging the Public with Climate Change helps professionals and students alike to recognise climate change communication which empowers behaviour change rather than preaches it.' Mike Hulme, Professor of Climate Change, University of East Anglia
