Effective public engagement around climate change is realized through a public actively taking part in learning and action on climate change. It involves engaging ‘minds, hearts and hands’ (Wolf and Moser 2011) and not just supplying information. Climate change must be made personal and relevant, and that is done best through the development of personal narratives, connecting people to local resources, and locally relevant solutions.
