Community-Led Television, Local Voice and Climate Action

Project Details


How can local communities be informed and inspired to take climate action? What role can local television play in this process? This research project will examine how local communities, on a communal and individual level, will be informed about and inspired to act on climate change through a series of local citizens assemblies which will be filmed and transformed into local television content. The Television Studies Research Group at Edge Hill University and the Heseltine Institute at the University of Liverpool will work together with the local community organisation, Love Wavertree CIC. The research project will examine how communities and individuals know about and are motivated to tackle climate change on one hand by participating in climate assemblies and on the other by local television, made with and about them, and if the latter can amplify local voices to inspire change.
