Climate Communications Initiative Releases Strategic Plan

In 2018, the National Academies launched the Climate Communications Initiative (CCI) to better leverage and unlock the storehouse of climate-related work from across the institution to more effectively meet and anticipate the needs of decision makers at all levels of society. An external Advisory Committee, together with a large internal staff team, have developed a strategic plan for the CCI to guide the National Academies' efforts moving forward.


Watch the video introduction from CCI Advisory Committee Chair, David Titley:



The Advisory Committee convened a public meeting in March of 2018 as input to their strategic planning process. View archived webcast videos here.
