EMPK strongly involved in research on climate change communication

The topic of "climate change" is more pressing than ever before. The Research Group Empirical Media Research has been dealing with climate change in communication for many years. It is currently working on various research projects on the subject and participates in social debates on climate change communication.

The topic of "climate change" is more topical than ever before. The Research Group Empirical Media Research has been dealing with climate change in communication for many years. It is currently working on various research projects on the subject and participates in social debates on climate change communication. Several master's and bachelor's theses are also dealing with climate change communication. Students who would like to write their thesis on topics in this area are invited to contact the EMPK staff.

Since the "Fridays for future" movement at the latest, climate change has increasingly returned to the media agenda. With its many years of research expertise in climate change communication, EMPK is currently in great demand as a discussion and cooperation partner.

Climate change as central argument for energy system transformation in Hesse

Last April, Marius Becker and Jens Wolling completed a project for the Hessian Energy Agency (LEA). On behalf of the Hessian state government, the LEA supports various projects to promote energy system transformation. In the context of the project relevant information for Hessen was investigated and on the basis handings and argumentation strategies developed, with which the topic can be communicated climate change as central argument for the energy turnaround.

Study: Networks of climate change deniers

Together with the Computational Communication Science department and supported by funds from the Department of Economic Sciences and Media (WM), the department conducts an analysis of the network of climate change deniers. First results of the study were presented by Jens Wolling on the faculty day. A presentation based on the results of the study was accepted at the K3 Climate Congress in Karlsruhe. https://k3-klimakongress.org/
