Welcome to the Climate Broadcasters Network
- Europe

The Climate Broadcasters Network – Europe was established in the context of the pan-European Climate Change Campaign, which was launched by the European Commission in May 2006.

On 16 February 2007, more than 45 meteorologists and weather presenters from across the European Union met in Brussels to discuss how best to raise awareness on climate change amongst the broad public, and how best to communicate effectively, and in an understandable manner, the latest scientific results to citizens. As a follow up to this conference, it was decided to set up the Climate Broadcasters Network – Europe.

The main objective of this Network is to communicate to citizens the science of climate change; its impacts, adaptation and mitigation needs, in order to facilitate broad understanding of the various issues. For more details, see the network brochure or, for more details, the network charter.

The network members have also committed themselves to share best practice and information within the network. This website has been created to support the network in achieving this particular goal.

We believe that the joint efforts of network members will result in a better understanding of the complexity of climate change issues and  motivate European citizens to take both individual and collective actions aimed at mitigating it.

An overview of the latest activities of the different CBN-E members can be found here (state October 2009) .

A new brochure is regulary produced by the Secretariat. Please have a look at the newest version containing valuable information about the network.
