I’ve had the joy and privilege over the last year to work with exceptional teammates.
I’d like to share a few examples of people doing exceptional work in support of climate change mitigation:
- The Medical Society Consortium on Climate and Health is a shining example.
- My colleague Ed Maibach has written a concise, clear example on environmental messaging being, “Easy, fun and popular.” I love it so much. I want to see this messaging reflected in all of the environmental communication going forwards.
- Al Bandura‘s insight that we can use iterative goal setting as a tool to improve efficacy inspires me. By setting proximal (short term) and distal(long term goals) and periodically reevaluating our successes will help us achieve all of our mitigation strategies.
- Max Boykoff is guiding us on using comedy to improve the cultural normalization of mitigation solutions.
- RepublicEn is supporting stories of bipartisan collaboration for creating clean, renewable energy.
- Climate Matters regularly provides content on the relationship between weather and climate.
- Toby Deml’s Cinema of Change Project improves collective efficacy among social change filmmakers.
- Debra Safer is building support for entertainment-education from Stanford.
- Mark Jacobson at The Solutions Project for improving the cultural normalization of climate solutions.
- John Balbus coordinating the National Climate and Health Assessment and Jay Lemery for writing Enviromedics, both providing examples of how climate change is affecting human health right now.
- Bill Ryerson continues to create stories for positive social change globally.
- Summer Marsh loyally helps me figure out everything else…
- Tom Parkin is jumping in to make a trailer to help visualize climate communication as a comedy.
- Liberum Donum translates my stick figures into beautiful concept art for sharing the stories that are a compilation of everyone above’s research.
I’m grateful to have skilled teammates as collaborators. Please take a look, share and build teams of your own. If you want to learn how, Ed’s paper is a great place to start.
