CMS would like to extend a huge congratulations to Dr Chloe Lucas on receiving the Tasmanian 2023 Young Tall Poppy of the Year!
Dr Chloe Lucas, is a geographer (Lecturer and Research Fellow in the School of Geography, Planning, and Spatial Sciences, the School of Natural Sciences and the Centre for Marine Socioecology, at the University of Tasmania) whose research focuses on forms of communication that can bridge these divides and improve climate citizenship.
Chloe leads Curious Climate Schools - a project that asks students what they want to know about climate change and matches them with experts to answer their questions. Over the last two years they’ve answered almost 500 questions from 50 classes around Tasmania.
Chloe’s research on bushfire communication has had a tangible impact on communities in Greater Hobart, leading to a partnership of four local governments to trial a new model of bushfire preparedness communication through the ‘Sparking Conversations, Igniting Action’ project.
