C3 Outreach Program
One of the aims of C3 is to engage the broader community in the debate about climate change. This can be achieved by helping the general public understand the complexities and ambiguities of climate change research and by explaining the types of research carried out by UTS scientists working in this important field.
Public lectures, radio programes and school visits provide C3 members with the opportunity to support educators, parents and students with objective information and sound science.
