Warming Up: Partnership with Griffith University addressing climate change


The CBAA has joined with Griffith University to investigate and develop educational programs so that Australian community media can report on climate change and drive the conversation in their communities.

Because their areas were severely affected and they played such a vital role in keeping their communities safe during the 2019-2020 bushfires, community radio has a crucial role in reporting and leading the conversation locally on climate change. After a successful pilot ran in NSW (Phase One), there are now plans to roll out the program to other regions.

The Pilot Project

This pilot project identified an opportunity for the community radio sector to lead its communities in climate action initiatives. The report followed reviews of academic and grey literature, a webinar organised by CBAA, and pilot case studies with five radio stations based around New South Wales who were selected for their interest in the project and experience with climate change in their communities.
