Project description: Climate change communication  and education (CCE) is recognized as a priority in the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Effective CCE is fundamental to overcoming climate denial, increasing climate literacy, and supporting climate action. There is an urgent need for increased quality and quantity of CCE globally, delivered across education, government, civil society, business, media, and communications sectors.  

The Monitoring and Evaluating Climate Communication and Education (MECCE) Project responds to this urgency with an ambitious international research agenda that aims to increase the quality and quantity of CCE to advance global climate literacy and action.

The MECCE Project is an international partnership project focused on increasing context-informed understandings of quality climate communication and education (CCE) in policy and practice, as well as providing global data to support country benchmarking, target setting, and progress in quantity of CCE provision. We are a partnership of over 100 scholars and organizations, including an Advisory Committee comprised of the IPCC, UNESCO, UNFCCC, and UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report.
