Abstract This project aims to form new partnerships between researchers at the University of Exeter's Tremough Campus and key stakeholders in the local community. It will focus in particular on strengthening networks between researchers and local schools through a series of workshops focused on climate change and energy policy issues. These will then be followed by a public forum meeting involving workshop participants and other stakeholders to evaluate how workshop outputs could be applied in an everyday context. We expect the project to generate useful insights into how to bridge a knowledge gap between university-level research and community implementation in the climate and energy policy debates.
