Climate Visuals, in collaboration with Communications Inc, have launched the Ocean Visuals project to catalyse a new evidence-based collection of impactful and truly diverse ocean and coastal climate imagery.
Visual media is vital to connect with audiences, but ocean, coastal and climate imagery is often ineffective, inaccessible or absent. Communicators and editors resort to using the same familiar metaphors, poorly representing people’s experiences and connecting with a very limited sector of the world’s population – missing a vital opportunity for real and lasting public engagement.Toby Smith, Climate Visuals Programme Lead and Media Liaison
