Curious Climate Tasmania aims to develop public-powered scientific engagement, bridging the gap between experts and audiences with credible, relevant information about climate change. There are many science communication projects providing interesting and reliable information, but the difference with Curious Climate is we have asked YOU what it is you’d like to know.
ABC Radio recently invited Tasmanians to send in the climate change questions they most wanted to know more about. We’ve gathered a team of scientists and researchers from a wide range of organisations across Tasmania who will now provide answers to the most popular questions you asked from each region - East Coast, West Coast, Northern and Southern Tasmania.
As part of National Science Week 2019, we will be revealing the answers to your questions and having a Q & A panel at a series of free public events around Tasmania. Please see the Events page for more details. Videos of the answers will also be available through this website shortly after Science Week.
Curious Climate Tasmania is a collaborative project between the Centre for Marine Socioecology (CMS), the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS), the University of Tasmania (UTAS), ABC Radio, the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA) and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). We are also grateful to many additional organisations from across Tasmania for providing access to an amazing group of researchers and experts for the public events.
