Since 2009 Green Alliance’s Climate Leadership Programme has worked with politicians to develop their understanding of climate change and what it means for their role at both national and constituency level.
But how do politicians navigate climate change? How do they understand the issue, and how do they decide what to do about it?
In a collaboration between Lancaster University and Green Alliance, led by associate Rebecca Willis, we are conducting research to gain a deeper understanding of climate politics, and how to support politicians in their efforts to tackle the issue.
Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, this project will run until 2018.
