Our research agenda

The DCU Centre for Climate and Society is interested in partnering with other bodies, groups, and institutions working in the climate, biodiversity, and sustainability areas.

We bring core expertise on climate policy, communications, and media to our research.

The Centre’s members have established relationships with a range of public and private bodies, and have been asked to consult on a wide range of policy and communications issues. The members’ work has been extensively cited in academic research and policy materials. Thus, the international climate governance, policy, research and climate communications community forms an important part of the Centre’s stakeholder base.

In Ireland, the Centre has established working relationships with a range of government departments and agencies, public bodies, ENGOs, and corporate and business entities. These include the Department of the Taoiseach, the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications, Dublin City Council, the network of Climate Action Regional Offices,​​ the Environmental Protection Agency, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, the National Economic and Social Council, Friends of the Earth, Friends of the Irish Environment, and Community Law and Mediation.

Internationally, the Centre has established networks with other research centres and institutes, both through the COST network framework, and through research collaborations.
