Edit 8 November: The vote is already closed now and the winners have been announced yesterday: they are two young women with their impressive poetic video “Rise”, which you can watch here.
The British climate communication organisation Climate Outreach has initiated the Climate Communication Awards to recognise outstanding individuals worldwide “who are driving public engagement with climate change”.
The three nominees for the “Climate Change Communicator of the Year – People’s Choice Award” are
- Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner & Aka Niviâna, poets and activists from the Marshall Islands and Greenland ,
- Professor Richard Betts, three-times IPCC author engaging in open-minded public discussions ,
- and Greta Thunberg, initiator of the Fridays for Future movement (more about it here on our blog).
We think this is a nice occasion to appreciate engagement in climate change communication and have a look at other people’s work in the field.
Members of the general public are now invited to vote for one of the nominees, which you can do easily here. The vote closes already on Wednesday, 6 November 11:30pm BST – so be quick to participate. The nominee with the most votes wins.
