Throughout the years, the Institute has developed a successful outreach program through public talks, lectures, and presentations to convey climate information to Washington-based embassies and encourage cooperative action among universities, religious groups and developing country institutions.
A trusted source of information on risks of climate change and potential options for intelligent adaptation and greenhouse emissions reduction, the Climate Institute's website has been instrumental in educating the general public. The content is expanded continuously to reflect the most recent developments in climate research, and in order to reach a broader international audience, the website is being translated into a variety of languages, beginning with Spanish, French, German, Italian and Chinese. Educational highlights on www.climate.org include:
The Climate Institute's quarterly publication, Climate Alert, seeks to explore in greater depth current pressing issues, such as smart climate solutions, the politics of climate negotiations, the economics of action vs. inaction, and food and water security. In September 2006, a transdisciplinary group of internationally respected researchers wrote the Climate Institute's reference book, Sudden and Disruptive Climate Change: Exploring the Real Risks and How We Can Avoid Them that discusses responses to climate change.
The Climate Institute is also compiling short films that spotlight young people working in their communities to raise climate change awareness and encourage mitigation strategies. The Young Voices on Climate Change program seeks to promote these films in order to inspire other young people to take action in their own lives.
