The Yale Program on Climate Change Communication (the Program, housed within the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies) helps craft to new approaches to communicating about climate change. The Program conducts national public opinion surveys that try to understand American knowledge, attitudes, decision-making and behaviors that relate to climate change. The Program’s survey work is seminal to the field of climate change advocacy and helps inform key audiences within governments, academia, business, advocacy, and the media. In addition to the survey work, the Program produces Climate Connections, a daily 90-second radio program on climate change that is broadcast on nearly 400 radio stations nationwide and partners with leading pollsters internationally. This award supports the Program’s general operations.

Yale Environment 360 (E360), a project of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, is an online magazine offering opinion, analysis, reporting, and debate on global environmental issues. This award provides operating support for the project which will allow the magazine to continue coverage of under-reported environmental topics, like climate change, biodiversity conservation, and pollution and health, while expanding coverage of solutions and technology, renewable energy, and durable conservation efforts. Flexible support will allow the project to respond to rapid changes in digital media, a particular challenge for independent, niche publications.
