Clean thinking for climate action

Action on climate change needs to be based on quality evidence. Clean Thinking for Climate Action contains a collection of trusted, peer-reviewed research that supports progress towards a better future for our planet.


Making climate research heard and shared widely

The climate crisis will affect everyone, and we all know that global action is urgently needed. There is no simple solution, but the world is crying out for a place where climate facts are truths and for a place where quality, evidence-based research andexpert voices on climate are heard and shared widely. Clean Thinking for Climate Action is part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring that peer reviewed research and researchersare centre-stage in delivering the truths needed to support global action on climate change.

So, what exactly is ‘Clean Thinking’?

Action that helps the planet needs to be based on quality evidence. We need as much knowledge as we can get across disciplines and globally to truly understand what climate change means for people and for the planet.

Clean Thinking for Climate Action is a multidisciplinary, dedicated destination for researchers and provides access to important research on climate change to educate and inspire this COP26. The hub showcases peer reviewed, unbiased clean thinking research and articles on issues of world-changing importance. You will find trending research, the latest findings, and articles on essential topics from sustainable cities to the economics of climate change.

Continue the conversation after COP26

As well as being inspired by free to access climate research, Clean Thinking for Climate Action also brings researchers together in conversation on how they can maximize the impact of their work too. Our free, virtual event during the month of COP26 takes a closer look at how climate research can reach wider audiences and has the power to make a difference too, with practical tips from expert authors and members of the academic community to educate and inspire.

We believe in the power of research in driving real-world impact and progress and Clean Thinking for Climate Action demonstrates how research really makes that difference.

Although people are indeed concerned about climate change, a report from the Kaiser Family Foundation and The Washington Post says they are not likely to take action on it. Only 1 in 10 surveyed say they often discuss the topic with either family or friends, and around that same number (12%) have contacted a government official or “participated in a protest, rally or other event to express their views on climate change (9%).

Through an in-depth exploration of the peer-reviewed climate research we publish, Leah Kinthaert analyzes what it really takes to implement behavioral change in the fight against climate change.


The F1000 Climate Action Gateway brings together all content published on F1000Research related to climate change, its causes, impacts and potential solutions; making the information rapidly and openly accessible for others to consult and use, thus supporting the development of effective scientific, policy, economic, social and behavioural responses.

The range of article types offered by F1000Research can be very helpful to researchers publishing climate science and related research, as well as relevant behavioural and social sciences.
