PhD Scholarship – Monitoring & Evaluating Climate Communication & Education
The Melbourne Graduate School of Education and Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute seek expressions of interest from eligible graduates for two PhD positions on the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Partnership Grant funded, ‘Monitoring and Evaluating Climate Communication and Education’ (MECCE) Project. The project team includes over 80 leading experts and international agencies, including UNESCO, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change Secretariat, the UN International Bureau of Education, the UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report, the International Institute of Sustainable Development, and many more. The University of Melbourne is an institutional partner on the project, and houses core project activities and team members. The MECCE Project responds to a need for increased quality and quantity of climate change communication and education (CCE) globally, across primary, secondary, and higher education, as well as government, civil society, business, media, and communication sectors. To date, there is a lack of understanding of what constitutes effective CCE. There is also a lack of global data to support benchmarking and target-setting by national and state level governments to increase CCE across sectors. The MECCE Project addresses these gaps by providing global data on the quantity and quality of CCE to help advance national and intergovernmental policy making, and practice across sectors.
