Dr Chloe Lucas AIPS 2023 Tasmanian Young Tall Poppy of the Year

Dr Chloe Lucas, 2023 Tasmanian Young Tall Poppy of the Year, is a geographer 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.
