About The Node
The MCCCRH Malaysia Node was established in 2021. It is led by the School of Arts and Social Sciences (SASS) at Monash University Malaysia in collaboration with the Monash Climate Change Communication Research Hub (MCCCRH), is dedicated to research climate communications in Southeast Asia. The node brings together expertise in SASS, with collaborators in the School of Science in Malaysia campus, and the existing team in MCCCRH.
We apply research strategies from media studies, journalism, climate science, sociology, psychology, international relations, education, and political science. This involves researching public attitudes towards climate change, and ways to better communicate the science and solutions. We partner with mainstream media entities such as television networks and community news to deliver trusted localised climate information to large audiences in meaningful ways.
To live in a world in which climate change is depoliticised, where people trust and understand the science and the solutions.
To build media, communication, and education programs that clearly communicate accurate, relevant climate science and solutions.
To facilitate global climate literacy, where governments, policymakers, businesses, and the public can make informed decisions in response to the evolving impacts of climate change.
