In the effort to offer citizens effective and reliable communication on scientific topics that have a significant impact on their daily lives, Climate Change is certainly one to take into consideration. In this perspective, QUEST project has selected Climate Change as one of the communication areas to tackle in its research.

The COVID-19 pandemic has offered additional opportunities to reflect on Climate Change, its impact and perception, especially through the lens of its communication in the media.

It is in this context that Jacopo Pasotti – science journalist and science communicator specialized in Climate Change – as part of Venice International University’s QUEST Team interviewed Marco Cattaneo, editor of Le Scienze, the Italian edition of the monthly science magazine Scientific American.
In the video interview available below, Pasotti and Cattaneo reflect on the challenges and perspectives arisen during Covid-19 crisis in relation to the communication of climate issues:
How has Climate Change been communicated during COVID-19? What future scenarios are to be expected, after the worst phase of the pandemic is over?

QUEST – QUality and Effectiveness in Science and Technology communication – is a two-year Horizon 2020 project coordinated by VIU's TEN Program on Sustainability.
