Publications

The CEDAR project initiates and supports media interventions to reveal, critique, and challenge the power structures involved in energy transitions and the messages they promote.

This page features relevant publications (slide decks, presentations, papers, articles, commentaries, videos, briefs, public submissions) produced by CEDAR team members since our project started in April 2023. Click on the link in the reference to view or download.
