In the UK a very substantial part of the public is not changing the way it uses energy - at home or on the move - in the face of climate change. They have either not been the target of efforts to persuade them to change, or have not responded to messages they have been exposed to.
This guide provides 10 principles for making climate change communications more effective. They have been written following research by ippr with an influential segment of the group of people who are not changing their habits.
